Rebecca Landis Hayes who served for eight years in the United States Navy, parked her car in a designated space for veterans in Coddle Creek Harris Teeter in Concord, NC.
And for some reason, a random person who saw her parking in the veterans spot concerned him so much that he felt compelled to leave a note on her windshield.
You can read the note on the next page.
The note that the random person left on her windshield
When she returned to her car, she discovered the note and decided to respond to him. You can find her response on the next page.
She posted the photo to her Facebook page, along with her own personal note to the person who left it.
“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 won’t do it again. I’m sorry…
I’m sorry that you can’t see my eight years of service in the United Sates Navy. I’m sorry that your narrow misogynistic world view can’t conceive of the fact that there are female Veterans. I’m sorry that I have to explain myself to people like you. Mostly, I’m sorry that we didn’t get a chance to have this conversation face to face, and that you didn’t have the integrity and intestinal fortitude to identify yourself, qualities the military emphasizes.
Which leads to one question, I served, did you?”
The post has since been shared more than 12,000 times, with people thanking her for her service.
Thank you Rebecca for your service. We appreciate you!
