William and Mary Law School's Lewis B. Puller, Jr. Veterans Benefits Clinic has partnered with Starbucks in creating "Military Mondays" at Starbucks.
Puller Clinic staff and students spend select Monday afternoons each month helping to address the challenges veterans and service members face in the disability claims process. Veterans are assisted by appointment (757-221-7443 or firstname.lastname@example.org). Free advice and counsel regarding disability compensation benefits, discharge upgrades, a service member's preparation for separation, and referrals to additional community resources are provided.
Read the Starbucks Newsroom story on Military Mondays.
Military Mondays is a partnership between the Puller Clinic and Starbuck's Armed Forces Network, and originally launched in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia - home to more than half-a-dozen active military bases, upwards of 100,000 active-duty and reserve personnel and thousands of veterans. The first Claims over Coffee was held in June 2015, and continues to be held on select Mondays at the McLaws Circle Starbucks in Williamsburg, Virginia, from 1 to 5 p.m., with the last appointment being at 4 p.m. Appointments can be made at email@example.com or (757) 221-7443. The successful pilot program is expanding nationally.
