PETERSON SPACE FORCE BASE, Colo. --

The Peterson-Schriever Garrison Chapel works with the United Service Organizations to operate the Eclipse Café located at Peterson Space Force Base, Colorado.

“The [building] space is owned by the P-S GAR Chapel and jointly operated by the P-S GAR Chaplain Corps and the USO,” said U.S. Air Force 1st Lt. Janis Thomas, P-S GAR Chaplain. “Essentially, the chapel and the USO both share the space and we work together to operate it.”

The Eclipse Café is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The P-S GAR Chapel runs the café from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and USO operates the café from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. The center offers free food and beverages along with video games across numerous platforms and a large selection of various board games.

“We [USO] offer  diverse programming through our out-reach programs including Coffee Connections, No Dough Dinners, and unit and deployment support,” said Linda Mays, Colorado USO Executive Director.  “Within the Eclipse Café, we offer a home away from home environment, a place to connect with others with free snacks and coffee.”

The café is open to all members of P-S GAR, but the center’s main focus is on Airmen and Guardians who live in the dorms.
