GI coffeehouses (or GI resistance coffeehouses) are anti-war, pro-soldier and pro-veteran cafés that have existed since the nineteen-sixties, offering support to soldiers, veterans and their families.  Their goals include providing a safe space for soldiers to find out about their rights, benefits and supports, access to counseling, and providing employment to ex-soldiers and their spouses.  Current spaces include Coffee Strong in Lakewood, Washington, Under the Hood Café outside of Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas, and Different Drummer in Watertown, New York — along with one café in Germany.  Former G.I. coffeehouses include Oleo Strut (1968-1972) in Killeen, Texas and The Shelter Half (1968-1974) in Tacoma, Washington, just outside Fort Lewis.
