Reserved Veteran Parking

Mary Claire Caine didn't do a damned thing wrong:
When Mary Claire Caine walked outside after finishing her routine grocery trip to Harris Teeter Friday, she couldn't believe what she found plastered to the front window of her car.
As a veteran of the Air Force who served in Kuwait and on the flight line of the F-117 Nighthawk, Caine felt proud to park in the reserved "Veteran Parking" spaces at the grocery store chain when she did her shopping. Her two kids were always excited whenever one of the spots was open, and no one had ever questioned her qualification for it, until now.
Just as she finished unloading the groceries from her cart, she noticed a note taped to the passenger window, written in sharpie.
It read, "Maybe [you] can't read the sign you parked in front of. This space is reserved for those who fought for America....not you. Thanks, Wounded Vet."
This is the mentality of some veterans--no one who is female could possibly have served their country and those who did were nurses or clerks. It's pathetic. This is probably the work of one of those regulars down at the American Legion. This is the wingnut who mouths off at people, always looking for a free drink, never did anything in the military, and can't let go of the one thing they managed to get through.

I can just imagine the scene--Caine drove up, parked, and went into the store and then some old jackass went to his car where he keeps his tape, his loose leaf paper, and his Sharpies so that he can tell people what they've done wrong and how they should go about making sure they don't piss him off. This is the work of someone who had to be prepared to leave a cowardly anonymous note on someone else's car. This is what entitled crybabies resort to when their fee-fees are hurt.

Caine's service is every bit as important as anyone else's service and that's all there is to it.
