“We are honored to play a small role to help raise awareness and support for our service men and women,” HBO chairman/CEO Richard Plepler said.  “Their immeasurable sacrifice deserves our nation’s gratitude.  This event will not only celebrate their service, but help remind Americans of the many challenges they face on and off the battlefield.  We are delighted to join with Starbucks in our mutual effort to pay tribute to our veterans and those serving in the military.”
