Soldiers Transform Bunker into a Coffee Shop

Looks like the "Starbucks" effect has hit the War Zone. These enterprising soldiers have done it again. A taste of home in the Desert. Just goes to show you "Where there is a will, there is a way." A GREAT story for the MWR Morale, Welfare, and Recreation) folks.


Soldiers Transform Bunker into Coffee Shop

LOGISTICAL SUPPORT AREA SPRING LAKE, Iraq, May 9, 2005 — Thanks to an idea from the 620th Corps Support Battalion's non-commissioned officer-in-charge of personnel services and the hard work of numerous volunteers, the soldiers here have a quality coffee shop where they can kick back and enjoy a good cup of java.
