Although Starbucks does not themselves directly donate to military personnel, they do get their coffee into the hands of those serving in the U. armed forces through their partnership with the USO.Under the terms of the Starbucks’ corporate giving policy, had such a request as presented in the much-circulated e-mail been made, the coffee giant would have had to say no to it.
This rumor, dating back to 2004, claims a lack of Starbucks support for the U. Marines, and has evolved to include a lack of support for the British Royal Marines.
In both instances, the rumor is not, and has never been, true.

In July 2004, a Starbucks in Cincinnati was reported to have been practically overflowing with people making yellow ribbons in support of Keith “Matt” Maupin, a soldier whose fate was then uncertain (it has subsequently been reported that his remains have been found and positively identified), along with red, white, and blue ones to show support for American troops in Iraq.
Such a refusal would have been in keeping with the corporation’s donations policy, in that Starbucks chooses to direct their charitable resources within the global community through grants from The Starbucks Foundation programs and to communities where its stores are located through local involvement.
According to the guidelines in place at the time, a request for coffee from soldiers serving overseas would have been turned down.
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.

He talked things over with the Marine who had supposedly contacted Starbucks, and that, coupled with that night’s televised news about the goings on in Iraq, made his blood boil.
