Won't Be Drinking Starbucks

I don't know if this is true. I did not verify the statements made in this email.
--------
Marines in Iraq wrote to Starbucks
WON'T BE DRINKING STARBUCKS ANYMORE

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 troops 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 ever know.

Thanks very much for your support. I know you'll all be
there again when I deploy once more.

Semper Fidelis.

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!!

Note:  Was checked on snopes and google - it is true.

JUST A NOTE TO THIS; STARBUCKS HAD  STORES ON
 SEVERAL MILITARY BASES IN THE UNITED STATES. THEY ARE  NOW BEING REMOVED BECAUSE OF THIS.
