Our Soldier of the Week: Specialist Zachary Thomas Shubinski

Steve Shubinski shows his Support from Home
 You may have noticed our stores hiding under all of that camouflage this summer as we rally our friends and family to Support our Troops overseas. For our fans on Facebook, we’ve extended the celebration by highlighting a Soldier of the Week as our profile photo. Each week we choose a service person in any branch to share our thanks within the community.

This week we have an extra special submission from one of our own District Managers Steve Shubinski. Steve has been a huge advocate of our Support from Home mission and shares his own thanks from his family and his son who currently serves our country.

Soldier of the Week

“My son, Specialist Zachary Thomas Shubinski is a member of the 222 Brigade in the 10th Mountain Division out of Ft. Drum New York.  Zach enlisted a few days after his 18th birthday and entered basic training in July of 2008.  His chosen “MOS” was a forward observer.  He was deployed to Afghanistan in January of 2010 and returned home in November 2010.  I am happy to say that Zach has developed quite a liking both for coffee and tea in the army.  In Afghanistan he drank quite a bit of Chai which is a sweetened black tea.  Now that he is home, one of his requests is for us to send him and his wife Jessica a regular supply of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf coffee!  Thank you for your service son.  Your Mom and I are very proud of you!” - Steve Shubinski
