The Shelter Half was a coffeehouse in Tacoma, Washington, from 1968 to 1974. Like its namesake, a Shelter-half is a simple tent to provide shelter, the Shelter Half's purpose was to provide a place for GIs at Fort Lewis military base in Washington State to resist the war in Vietnam. The GIs turned The Shelter Half into an anti-war headquarters, publishing underground anti-war newspapers, organizing boycotts, and leading peace marches.
