Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz tells Scott Pelley he fears that with the wind-down of the war in Afghanistan, some Americans may forget too quickly about the needs of the troops who served. Schultz says his gift will go toward job training and research for post-traumatic stress disorder.

    Fantastic. Now if the political components could understand that they put the troops in harms way and then cut the budget. Do they understand what cutting the budget MEANS???

    Thank you Starbucks for your generosity and your concern. So many that we send into battle come home with injuries that may last a life time. Loss of limbs, vision, hearing, PTSS and more. They don't return to parades and fanfares but they return to hospitals,rehab and long roads of recovery. Again thank you for what you are doing.

    This guy is a true patriot. I think that Starbucks is over priced, but I will continue to buy it because he is incredible. God Bless You MR Schultz you have it figured out, now get more like you on board.

    My whole attitude towards Starbucks has just done a 180 degree turn. Yeah, it's still " the good place to be seen" thing, but that's the customers, or a lot of them. So what, this guy is amazing to do that, especially a Seattle based company. Yes, I know, it's a tax write off too. SO WHAT. These CEO's, or owners, or "the board" can pick any charity they want. Leave the rich alone. Their tax write offs have supported non profits for years. This guy seemed REALLY sincere though, especially concerning his long term hiring plan or vets and their families. Even if the company hasn't one altruistic bone in their entire boardroom, and it's strictly a smart accounting move, SO WHAT again. The money still goes to these worthy causes.

    Wow, I'm so impressed with this CEO. I wish our CIC had as much integrity as Mr. Schultz. Awesome thing to do for our Soldiers.
