Our Story

When founder Elana Duffy was medically retired following combat injuries after a roadside bomb, she sampled resources in search of medical, social, and other assistance. She relied heavily on her personal veteran network for recommendations and advice. The more she relied on the network, the better experiences she had.

In 2015, we built Pathfinder to provide that same type of network on a greater scale to every Veteran, family member, and Veteran community supporter - no matter what stage of transition.



Pathfinder Labs was created to ease military veterans’ transitions back into civilian life. We give Veterans and their friends and family members a way to rate, review, and connect with local community resources.
