What started out... as a little shop named Pat's Gourmet Coffee Shop, named in honor of his wife, became much more. It became a "Living" Military Museum, named in honor of the man who spent the last 14 years of his life honoring and supporting America's Veterans. It was owned and operated by Richard Warren, a U.S. Army, Vietnam Huey gunship pilot, callsign "Mustang 53".
With his background Richard made a point of extending the traditional veterans greeting of "Welcome Home" to every veteran who came in the shop. Over time, Pat's became a gathering place for veterans of all ages and a collection of artifacts, awards, magazine and newspaper articles slowly accumulated. more >>>

I just found out about your Coffee Shop/Museum and my husband and I (both USAF members) plan on visiting when we are up that way visiting our dear friends who live near there. Incidentally, the friends that live up there are both USAR veterans - Randy is a West Point grad and Linda, well, Linda has quite a story - she'll be featured in a Ron Howard documentary on women veterans this year: http://www.unsungheroespresentation.com/
