Just received this email, has it done the rounds before?
Recently Marines in Iraq wrote to Starbucks because they wanted to Let them know how much they liked their coffees and to request that they Send some
of it to the troops there. Starbucks replied, telling the Marines thank you for their support of their business, but that Starbucks does not support
the war, nor anyone in it, and that they would not send the troops their brand of coffee. So as not to offend Starbucks, maybe we should not support
them by buying any of their products! I feel we should get this out in the open. 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 and house-to-house. If you feel the same as I do then pass this
along, or you can discard it and no one will never know. Thanks very much for your support. I know you'll all be there again when I deploy once

PLEASE DON'T DELETE THIS. .. ALLOW IT TO BE PASSED TO ALL IN MEMORY OF ALL THE TROOPS WHO HAVE DIED SO THAT WE MAY HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE TO
SUPPORT THEM OR NOT!!
Also, don't forget that when the Twin Trade Towers were hit the fire
fighters and rescue workers went to Starbucks because it was close by
for water for the survivors and workers and Starbucks charged them! ! !
JUST A NOTE TO THIS: STARBUCKS HAD STORES ON SEVERAL MILITARY BASES IN THE UNITED STATES. THEY ARE NOW BEING REMOVED BECAUSE OF THIS.
There are also 227 stores across the UK and there's no doubt that our
soldiers would get the same response from this company.
