They are a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping veterans who battle this inner disease, as 22 veterans a day commit suicide due to PTSD. The goal is to get them outdoors through hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities, and to be there for them and minister the word of God to them, and let them see that there are people here that care about them. In 2018 they are auctioning off a special item, a guitar with over 90 signatures from some of the biggest names in Texas Music, and still climbing. Buddy Lee was part of Voices Of A Greatful Nation and is the writer behind the song " A Soldiers Prayer". If you'd like more information about Pathfinders and the guitar so that they can raise money to continue taking veterans on hunts, visit pathfindersoutdoors.org.
