Military men and dating

Starbucks wrote back telling the Marines thanks for their support in their business, but that they don’t support the War and anyone in it and that they won’t send them the Coffee.So as not to offend them we should not support in buying any Starbucks products.

Now I ask that you all pass this email around to everyone you passed the last one to. As for what Starbucks has to say about the matter, they have long since refuted the rumor on their website, stating: On behalf of Starbucks’ more than 140,000 dedicated partners (employees), we want to set the record straight on an old rumor concerning Starbucks lack of support for the military and our troops.

This rumor, dating back to 2004, claims a lack of Starbucks support for the U. Marines, and has evolved to include a lack of support for the British Royal Marines.

If you feel the same as I do then pass this along, or you can discard it and I’ll never know.

Thanks very much for your support to me, and I know you’ll all be there again here soon when I deploy once more. Wright 1st Force Recon Co 1st Plt PLT RTO We got in touch with the e-mail’s writer and asked him about the events that led to his penning the note about Starbucks’ response to Marines who had come to them looking for a donation of coffee. Wright heard the story from a friend, who had gotten it from someone else.

He talked things over with the Marine who had supposedly contacted Starbucks, and that, coupled with that night’s televised news about the goings on in Iraq, made his blood boil.

He pounded out his thoughts into the form of an e-mail, which he mailed to ten of his friends.According to the guidelines in place at the time, a request for coffee from soldiers serving overseas would have been turned down.However, while it is true Starbucks as a corporate entity could not have donated coffee to java-seeking Marines, it would have passed along such a request to any number of its employees looking for military mailing addresses to send product to, as they has already done on many occasions.The claim that Starbucks would ever have said “they don’t support the War and anyone in it” is false, in light of what various news accounts show us about the coffee retailer’s attitude towards those who serve in the armed forces.In addition to what Starbucks themselves say of their beneficences to soldiers, we know from different newspaper articles of other instances of glad-hearted support.Starbucks partners receive one pound of free coffee each week as an employee benefit (known as “partner mark-out”).
