Our Mission

Recognizing the responsibility of communities to help those who serve, Clear Path for Veterans empowers service members, veterans, and their families through supportive programs and services in a safe, respectful environment.

We are a community based non profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2011 in rural upstate New York. Our mission revolves around connecting our Veterans to their communities through wellness, peer support, community outreach and education. We do this by accepting our role and responsibility in caring for those who’ve served. Founded on principles and values of traditional warrior culture, Clear Path’s model of reintegration mirrors traditions hundreds of years old.



Our Partners

Our collaboration with like-minded organizations provides an accurate and varied list of recreation, civic/government, education, VA and other support programs available to veterans and their families.

The Watchfire stems from the military tradition that following a battle or long march, a large fire would be started so those missing or lost could locate and rejoin their comrades. Using that time honored model symbolically, we use the warmth and light of our Watchfire to guide everyone to join us in reflection of those comrades who have gone before us and made our nation strong through their service and sacrifice.

VVA Chapter 103 uses the Watchfire and accompanying ceremony to make Memorial Day more meaningful for everyone in the community. Veterans and Non-Veterans are invited to gather at the Watchfire to honor those who have so faithfully served the nation.

Clear Path staff and volunteers are proudly offering their time and energy today to help build the watchfire pyre. As you go about the holiday weekend (hopefully with good food, friends, and family!) please keep in mind those who have sacrificed for our freedom.
