General Joe Becker was the former leader of the Commonwealth Minutemen who died prior to or during May 2282.[1][2]

Background

General Becker was considered by Ronnie Shaw, Preston Garvey and James Wire to be a good leader and the main thing keeping the Minutemen together as a unit.[1][3] After his death, infighting eventually led to the near-collapse of the Minutemen as they turned to banditry and raiding, activities which would have sickened Becker had he been alive to witness it.[4][5]

Appearances

Becker is mentioned only in Fallout 4.
