eTown E-Chievement Award – Gary Becks / Rescue Task Force

Gary Becks was a Marine medic in Vietnam before becoming a fire fighter in San Bernardino, California. In the 1980’s, he joined up with a medical mission to Honduras to put his medical skills to use. Gary was so shocked by the primitive conditions in the jungle villages of Honduras that he decided to quit his job as a fire fighter and dedicate his life to bringing medical and literacy resources to third world countries. Founded in 1988, Rescue Task Force now has four permanent medical clinics in Honduras that act as key access points for day-long mobile medical clinics into extreme remote jungle areas, women’s literacy projects in Afghanistan that have graduated over 7000 women, as well as programs in Cambodia to promote youth literacy for victims of human trafficking and wheelchair donations for victims of land mines. In addition to these main programs, Rescue Task Force does more specific disaster relief missions worldwide. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, Rescue Task Force has provided aid to more than 150,000 people through medical and dental care, literacy projects, and wheelchair donations.
