Kilroy Coffee Klatch: Idaho’s largest monthly gathering of veterans!

February 6 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

The Kilroy Coffee Klatch was started by a handful of Veterans looking for a place to share coffee, donuts, and stories with other Veterans. Since then Kilroy has grown into the largest monthly gathering of Veterans in Idaho! 

Our Kilroy Coffee Klatch meets the first Tuesday of every month at 10 a.m. and is FREE to any and all veterans! The general public is also welcome; regular admission charges will apply. Coffee and doughnuts will be served. No RSVP required. We hope you will join us!

February 6, 2024:

Guest speaker Ted Thompson retired from the Air Force in 2005 after over 30 years of service. As an Air Force pilot, he flew 3200 hours in several types of jets. One of which was the MiG-21 as part of the Air Force’s Constant Peg program.

The mission of Constant Peg was to train Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps pilots and weapon systems officers in air combat tactics against foreign aircraft. It was instrumental in the re-development of dissimilar air combat training (DACT) methods developed after the Vietnam War. The declassified history of the squadron shows that it operated MiG-17s, MiG-21s, and MiG-23s between 1977 and 1988.

Watch previous Coffee Klatch’s on our Kilroy Coffee Klatch page. We have selected videos of the event starting from December 2010 available.

Please note: Admission is only FREE for Veterans who attend the Kilroy Coffee Klatch. Admission will be charged to those who simply wish to visit the museum during that time (without participating in the Coffee Klatch).
