Please pass this along to anyone you know, this needs to get out in the open.
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 and try to score some free coffee grounds.
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. As a War vet and writing to you patriots 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 for what they and I believe is right.
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.

now, i'll admit, i'm basically against this war for a lot of reasons i won't put here, but as for the people fighting it, i don't care whether or not they share my ideology, they deserve to be treated better than as villains. they did not request this war, and no doubt would have things happen differently than they are, too.
