Rebecca Hayes is a Navy veteran from North Carolina who parked in an appropriate parking spot that was reserved specifically for veterans at her local shopping center.
However after she returned from her shopping she found a very scathing note plaster on her car windshield.
The note nastily shouted,
"This parking is for veterans LADY! Learn to read & have some respect!"
After finding the note, Hayes was crushed.
However this sadness soon transformed to anger as she broadcasted the incident on Facebook.
In response to this cowardly attack, Hayes publicly posted the following:
"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 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?"
