From time to time I hear people speaking negatively about Starbucks. The national brands will always get some negative press which causes some folks to jump on the band wagon and begin to pour on the hate (pun intended). While I have a favorite local coffee shop where I like to hang out and work, I am always pleased with the service when I visit a Starbucks. But when I saw this story, I am even more impressed with the big coffee company: http://tinyurl.com/ybfbla38.
I never served in the U.S. military. But I am grateful to all the men and women who have and continue to defend our nation through their military service. I have been honored to record many stories of veterans of World War II and those who have served since. How we treat those who serve and their families speaks volumes as to who we are and what we stand for. Kudos to Starbucks for setting a high standard for the rest of us and proving their hearts are not just in the quality of their products and service, but also in how they honor and treat the military community.
Enjoy the article and when you get a chance, go to your nearest Starbucks and simply say to the person behind the counter, “Thank you!”
