The Veterans Resource Center at Battleship IOWA is a veteran community center and hub welcoming veterans and their families of every branch and service era.

The Battleship IOWA is an all-inclusive, holistic, and enjoyable environment for all. The ship uses its vast space to function as a community center that hosts programs and events, and provides services for the benefit of veterans throughout the region.

The Veterans Resource Center is generously funded with contributions from Phillips 66, Johnny Carson Foundation, Wells Fargo, and Timken.
