Soldier, Storyteller

What does a veteran look like?


I’ve seen a couple of these turn up over the last few days: A woman veteran uses one of the courtesy spots some merchants provide and gets a nasty note from anonymous person telling her she can’t park there because the parking spot is for veterans (read: men).

Once the soldier takes off the uniform, what exactly does that veteran look like?

They might be tall.  They might be short.

They might be thin.  They might be heavy.

They might wear a suit.  Or they might wear a skirt.

Not all veterans are men.

    Exactly! Altho I did feel pretty good when I went to the mall and saw one of those spots for the first time. I zipped right in! My daughter just grinned at me.

    • It’s one of the reasons I go to that grocery store. It does feel good.
