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.

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

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

So what's the question addressed to? The bad*** hero Marines or Starbucks?

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.

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. ;? ;?

I was in the 3rd MAW 64-71. Two times in nam, second tour I was a tunnel rat. Got blown up and left with a plastic chest and rods in my back. April about the 15th I will get rods from my ass to my neck. Be glad to get this over so I can see what I have left. Came out a Gunny, you know how much that pays me a month. LOL.
