I'm a former U.S. Army Airborne Ranger & Maryland State Trooper who witnessed domestic violence throughout my life. I met Becky Lee through her organization "Becky's Fund" and became passionate in helping other through the community with domestic violence. The organization started a Young Men's Mentoring Program and I immediately wanted to help in anyway I could through Becky's Fund. Becky's Fund has organized various events, trips, professional sports events, and educational group sessions for the young men effected through domestic violence in the community. Often so many organizations focus on the women and not the men in case of domestic violence. Becky's Fund was one of the pioneer's of this approach and she embraced my experience from both my military & law enforcement background. Becky has such a passion to help anyone and everyone effected by domestic violence. At any hour of the day Becky Lee has made herself and the organization available for victims across the country. The organization is one that embraces change and is open to new approaches in confronting this issue head on. The organization is one that focus on eliminating the issue of domestic violence and opens it's doors to men, women and children of all ages when it comes to this cause. While I volunteer with every aspect of the organization I have learned both sides of the issue facing domestic violence victims. My understanding on how, why and what reason victims remain silent as well as why so many turn their backs on this cause. One couldn't sit back and remain silent when volunteering for such a well organized, focused and respected organization without joining the fight against domestic violence. I without question believe that Becky's Fund is not only an asset to the community. I believe it's the one of the most diverse organizations addressing various causes and issues to where everyone can get involved. Becky gives everything she has to the organization and challenges everyone to do the same to rid the world of domestic violence. As a volunteer, former Army Airborne Ranger and Maryland State Trooper Becky's Fund is a Win Win for everyone!
