    Just received this in my e-mail.

    Recently Marines over in Iraq supporting this country in OIF wrote to Starbucks because they wanted to let them know how much they liked their coffee & try to score some free coffee grounds.
    Starbucks wrote back telling the marines, thanks for the support in their business but that they don't support the war or anyone in it & that they won't send them the coffee....

    I know this war might not be very popular with some folks, but that doesn't mean we don't support the boys on the ground fighting street to street & house to house for what they & I believe is right....

    If they want Starbucks, they should have Starbucks. If Starbucks did say/do that, it's a shitty thing, and they deserve a very rapid decline in local business. Get an address, if you can...

    I dont know if it is true or not, but I do know that there have been a lot of stories like this going around about different companies that just were not true.

    Starbucks is based in a very liberal part of the country. There owners and/or Spokesmen have been outspoken about the war. It could be possible.

    I agree that is a terrible thing to report back to the troops. However I can't confirm nor deny whether this happened. Either way I luv starbucks but I don't pay 3 or 4 dollars for a coffe anyways.

    Uh? Is nobody reading my replies?

    The Email was real, but based on a misunderstanding.


    I agree in part; why would guys complain about not getting over-roasted beans?
