Veteran's Day image2This Veteran’s Day at Starbucks, all active duty military, veterans, and military spouses will enjoy a free tall cup of coffee.  Go to for more information.  In addition, Starbucks has announced that it plans to recruit more than 10,000 veterans into its work force over the next five years.

I personally feel the utmost respect and appreciation for those who have served.  We have a voluntary military.  Whether you joined the Air Force, Army, Marines, Coast Guard, or Navy, and served for two years or twenty, I thank you.

(My own experiences were in the Air Force, having served four years during a peaceful time.  These were my stripes.)

Thank you Starbucks for your Veteran’s Day promotion and commitment to hiring veterans!
