Karen and Mike, also known to you as Tabberone, have been actively participating in various troop support programs
for a number of years. An important one we have discovered and supported is one run by the
Green Beans Coffee Company of Larkspur, California. The Green Beans Coffee Company runs coffee
houses in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Middle East and at other US military bases around the world. Your donations are
converted into email chits that are randomly given to military personal who are based near these coffee houses. You
are then sent an email by Green Beans Coffee telling at what location your donation(s) was distributed. The military
recipient of your donation is also given the opportunity to email you a thank you with a message, which many of them do.
Modern military deployment has changed very much since WWII, Korea and Vietnam. Back then there was no internet
or cell phones. A soldier very rarely could call home or even go home on leave. But modern deployment does not alter
the dangers they face. Green Beans Coffee is one of the little pleasures they can enjoy. Any donation makes a service
man or service woman smile. We contribute every month.
