ARCHIVES

Starbucks' defenders have weighed in about my Oct. 27 item on coffee donations for the troops. Actually, they point out, there are at least a few potential legal hurdles to providing coffee or anything else of value directly to the troops. The better approach, they say, would be for Starbucks to give coffee to the USO, which could then pass it on to those in uniform. And this happens to be exactly what the company is doing for soldiers returning or departing via the Dallas airport, according to an Army reader.
