Warrior PATHH

The Posttraumatic Growth training program we will deliver on the retreat is known as Warrior PATHH (Progressive and Alternative Training for Helping Heroes). Warrior PATHH is a highly successful program (with proven results of reducing PTSD symptoms by 51%) that was developed by Boulder Crest Foundation (Bluemont, VA) – the leaders in the field of posttraumatic growth – which was founded by Ken Falke in 2013, a 21-year combat veteran of the U.S. Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) community and retired Master Chief Petty Officer.

Warrior PATHH is a free 7-day combat stress recovery retreat for warriors (with separate programs for male and female combat veterans).

Warrior PATHH Program Begins in early 2023

Eagle Oak Retreat will be offering family retreats in Fall of 2023 to families of Combat Veterans and First Responders.

Nearly 3 million troops deployed to the prolonged wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. It is estimated that nearly 1,000,000 of these combat veterans are battling combat-related stress. Due to lengthy deployments, visible and invisible injuries impact every member of the family. Our mission is to start with the Warrior PATHH program and then extend this program to include couples and families. We will be offering Family Rest and Reconnection Stays at the Eagle Oak Retreat in the Fall of 2023.

These Family R & R Stays will make a lasting and positive impact on those who served and sacrificed for our country.

President, Co-founder, Chair of the Board

Lillian Watanabe

Lillian and her husband Steve, from Hawaii, were just settling into retirement when they were presented with an opportunity to purchase a beautiful 65-acre ranch in Italy, TX in 2020. They are just two civilians who wanted to make a difference in the lives of those that have served our country. In 2021, Lillian and Steve donated 11-acres of their ranch to become the Eagle Oak Retreat Foundation, dedicated to helping our nation's Warriors and their families make peace with their past, live in the present, and begin planning for their future.
