A Cup Of Joe For A Joe
by Green Beans Coffee Company
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 personnel 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.

Our Soldier Wall

Between Cup Of Joe For A Joe and AdoptaPlatoon we have had a bunch of adopted soldiers over the years. We began supporting our troops through AdoptaPlatoon in 2008. A few years later we heard of the Cup Of Joe For A Joe and began using them as well. This is a picture our soldier wall, as of January 29, 2016. On display are items we have been sent by various organizations and individuals. We just got our fifth American flag in January 2016. We link to pages with close-up pictures of the different gifts. Please excuse the camera flash as these are amateur pictures.

Our first American flag, first flag from the left top row in the picture, has a certificate stating it was carried on a Kiowa helicopter during a combat mission on August 7, 2009, in Operation Enduring Freedom, by the 7th Squadron of the 17th Cavalry, 101st Airborne Division, Jalalabad, Afghanistan. In the corner of the flag frame is their special unit patch, "Death Rides", Task Force Pale Horse, Forward Operations Base Fenty. This was the first item sent to us. It came compliments of CH (CAP) Wayne M Scholle, OEF. To the right of that certificate, under the flag frame, is a letter from AdoptaPlatoon.

Our second American flag, in the brown frame top row, has a certificate stating the flag was carried on a combat mission August 8, 2012, by the First Military Intelligence Battalion, Jalalabad, Afghanistan, on an unmanned aircraft (drone), in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Signed by CPT Anthony J. Palumbo.

Our third American flag, in the large rectangular frame bottom left, has a certificate stating it was flown "in the face of the enemy" on February 3, 2013, by Bravo Company, 101st Expeditionary Signal Battalion, Kandahar, Afghanistan, sent to us by Staff Sergeant John P. Palmeri, one of our adopted soldiers through AdoptaPlatoon. SSG Palmeri also sent us three post cards after his unit received parcels from us. The framed flag was very unexpected. The three post cards are top right in the picture.

Our fourth American flag is the third flag top row in the picture. It has a certificate from the United States Forces, Afghanistan, stating the flag was flown over the headquarters in Bagram, Afghanistan on April 7, 2013. Signed by Maj Gen Kenneth R. Dahl. Sent to us by LTC John W. Weeks.

Our fifth American flag is in the brown frame second row in the picture. It has a certificate stating that on 1 December 2015, the flag was flown on a "Special Operations U-28A aircraft during a combat mission over Iraq in direct support of Operation Inherent Resolve". Sent to us by Emiri Katahara who has deployed back to the States.

To the right of the Second American Flag, is a postcard from Beau, of "Afghan War Rugs". Beau was one of our adopted soldiers who is now Stateside.

On the right wall, top left second row, is a Certificate of Appreciation from the 335th Signal Command, Kandahar, Afghanistan, Operation Enduring Freedom, 2011-2012. It cites Karen for her contributions. Signed August 29, 2012, Bagram Airfield, by LTC John W. Weeks. Colonel Weeks also sent us five post cards after his unit received parcels from us. Four of the post cards are on the right wall, bottom right.

From LTC RA Wasserman, Joint Special Operations Command, right wall, is an "Airborne" combat unit patch and a bumper sticker with a warning in English and Arabic, "Caution Stay 100 Meters back Or You Will Be Shot".

Right wall, second row down, on the right, is a certificate designating Karen as a "Warrior Medic" from the 115th Combat Support Hospital, Operation Iraqi Freedom, 2009-2010, signed by CH (MAJ) Thomas B. Vaughn, Jr, Senior Hospital Chaplain.

The Cup Of Joe framed t-shirt came from Green Beans Coffee, January 2012, by way of Afghanistan, and is autographed by some twenty-five soldiers stationed there. Under the t-shirt are two letters from Green Beans Coffee.

Under one of the letters from Green Beans Coffee is a card from the troops in Charlie Company, 5th Battalion 158th Aviation, Task Force War Hawk. One of our adopted soldiers through AdoptaPlatoon.

After most candy holidays, we go shopping for half-price candy. Easter Sunday, March 26, 2016 was no exception. We sent Anne two boxes full of candy which she promptly took to the aide station for distribution. Anne was in harm's way with the 2nd Battalion, 70th Armor Regiment but is now back in the States. April 6, we received a picture with an email. Click here for both.

And not least, on left wall, middle, above the flag frames, is a picture and signed Christmas card from the medics of the 379th EMDG Expeditionary Medical Group) in Qatar, compliments of Alyssa Korb who was stationed there. "Prepare To Shock - Medics Rock!"
To the left of that picture and card is the fifth post card from LTC John W. Weeks.

Zack, a staff sergeant with the 101st Airborne, sent us picture of him with his section at Bagram.

We also have a variety of pictures sent to us via email from deployed serice members, and one civilian. Click here to see them.

And some other things. Left wall, third row, right side, is a frame with various insignia representing units with whom Mike was stationed: Fifth Infantry Division (1963-1964) at Fort Carson, Colorado; Berlin Brigade (1964-1967) in West Berlin, West Germany; and Twenty-fifth Infantry Division (1967) in Cu Chi, South Vietnam. Also in the frame is his Combat Infantry Badge (CIB), dog tag and second Purple Heart (with Oak Leaf Cluster).

My 3 small pictures of sweet departed Tabber
The cat who never had a bad hair day!

Early humans domesticated the dog to aid in hunting and home protection.
Cats domesticated humans to have a warm place to sleep.
Tabberone, 2009

Don't go to bed mad.
Stay awake and plot your revenge.
If you had ever met my family
you would understand.
Everything I say is irrefutably supported by my opinion.
The woman. The myth. The Legend.
I started out with nothing and
I still have most of it left.
Red meat isn't bad for you.
Fuzzy green meat is.
You know you are getting old when
everything has either dried up or leaks.
I have child-proofed my house
But they keep getting in anyway.
Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.
Deja Moo
The feeling you have heard this bull before.
Don't worry about what other people think They don't do it very often. I.m not addicted to coffee but we have a serious relationship
