A friend of mine, Robert Gowan, a Kona Coffee farmer that lives in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii has been supplying coffee to our troops currently deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq.

Since 2008, Gowan, the Hawaii state coordinator of the Hawaii Chapter of the Gathering of Eagles, has sent more than 5,000 pounds of coffee as well as other supplies to every service branch currently deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq. In each service, the project has a different name. For the Marines, it is Operation Jarhead Java.

I am enclosing a link to the Marine newsletter, Hawaii Marine Lifestyles, July 29, 2011, Volume 42, Number 30.

Scroll down to the article entitled: "One cup of coffee, G.I. Joe".

One cup of coffee, G.I. Joe

If you have ever wondered if one man could make a difference, then read this article and become a believer.

Robert, You are my Hero!

And so it goes...
