Veteran fires back after angry note is left on car...for parking in a Veteran's space [View all]


That woman, Rebecca Landis Hayes, took to Facebook to respond to the anonymous note writer:

To the person who left this note on my windshield today at the Coddle Creek Harris Teeter in Concord, NC:

I know I parked in one of the Veteran Parking spaces today, it was hot. I had been in and out of my car several times already this afternoon, and I was only going to be a minute. Besides, the parking lot was full, so I just did it. It was the first time, and I wonít do it again. Iím sorryÖ

Iím sorry that you canít see my eight years of service in the United Sates Navy. Iím sorry that your narrow misogynistic world view canít conceive of the fact that there are female Veterans. Iím sorry that I have to explain myself to people like you. Mostly, Iím sorry that we didnít get a chance to have this conversation face to face, and that you didnít have the integrity and intestinal fortitude to identify yourself, qualities the military emphasizes.

Which leads to one question, I served, did you?
