Half coffee shop, half museum, the staff make a super effort to make you feel welcome

Even if you didn't serve or don't even know a veteran, you'll make a friend here. An amazing little privately funded museum (help 'em out ... they are trying to expand). I've... read more

Even if you didn't serve or don't even know a veteran, you'll make a friend here. An amazing little privately funded museum (help 'em out ... they are trying to expand). I've enjoyed talking to the staff and volunteers every time. Ralph made me a chicken sandwich that was just fine. I needed to get out the car and study... More

It's a great place for Vets to meet other Vets. It's a great place for local musicians to meet and play music on Saturday mornings. Richard served Vets after serving in Viet Nam as a Helicopter Gunship Pilot. After he died, this place became reality. You need to visit. The coffee is good (by .mil standards) and cheap.

It truly is a living museum! Not only do they have many displays of the military and various wars, but you can speak with veterans that hang out there. One of the Vets I met was a B-29 bomber pilot. Cool! They also provide some services for veterans, like internet. If all you want is some coffee, tea, or a... More

Did not expect to find such an awesome place in this small town. As retired veterans, my wife and I were overwhelmed by the hospitality and friendliness of these vets! Incredible displays and history are on display. We will definitely go back. Hopefully on a day when more vets are there, to hear their stories and service history. An American... More

This attraction is amazing. It is not your typical coffee shop. It is run by all vets who volunteer their time. Over 10,000 veterans have signed the guess list. The organization started when a former Vietnam Gunship Pilot moved to town 12 years ago. The shops theme was to honor Vets. Today, it has some of the most unusual displays... More

I had heard of Richard's from a friend, but wasn't prepared for such a warm welcome. They made my wife and I feel like family. The displays brought back a lot of good memories and helped my wife get a feel of military life. Wonderful place, wonderful people. Many thanks.
