Political Activism at GI Coffeehouses
This chapter details the specific actions taken by GIs and civilians at antiwar coffeehouse projects. From publishing and distributing underground newspapers, to organizing major strikes, boycotts, and demonstrations, activists at coffeehouses brought the style and force of the youth antiwar movement to major sites of the Vietnam War effort, like Killeen, Texas (home of Fort Hood), Columbia, South Carolina (near Fort Jackson), and Tacoma, Washington (near Fort Lewis). By profiling a number of specific actions and their consequences, this chapter demonstrates the diverse range of issues that concerned American GIs during the Vietnam War, and reflects on the strategies of the individuals and organizations that attempted to address them.
