    As a disabled 60's Marine, this really hit home.

    Did you know that Starbucks Coffee will not send coffee packs over to our troops? They do not support the war effort.

    Why did you post this in this thread...?

    Well, it is your thread, but why not a new thread?

    Do you have a link to the information about your statement?

    Here is a link to the "Starbucks hates the Military" issue.

    http://www.snopes.com/politics/military/starbucks.asp

    I have been in several Starbucks while in uniform and never had a problem. In fact, while deployed to San Jose, CA (yeah, real rough...), they actually gave me two free gallon carry outs so we would be "good to go while watching our satellites." I have nothing against Starbucks, except their prices.

    In response to the Marines in the picture, I don't think it requires words.

    Well, since I quoted the Starbucks statement...

    I would guess that is the subject of the question...;)

    I saw this on Fox this morning. If not true I am sorry and retract the statement.

    Absolutely not. What would lead you to believe that I had a problem with the Marines? The problem I have is that this should be two seperate threads. Neither have anything to do with each other.

    Gentlemen, please keep your comments confined to the subject matter of the posted picture. If you'd like to discuss another subject, such as the Starbucks matter, please start another thread. Thank you :)

    Great picture by the way. ;? ;?
