There is a double standard at this Veteran’s place of employment, it’s ugly, and his story is going VIRAL!
As the shadows of political correctness deepen over America, Lee Young of Utica, Ohio, decided he would not go gentle. Instead, he took to Facebook to correct a grave injustice done to a veteran working at a Walmart in Okemos, Mich., who was judged less equal than a Muslim clerk.
The elderly man, named Val, worked as a greeter, Young wrote.
share if this bothers you as much as it did me……..
It’s long but I promise it’s worth the read.
No better way to make my blood boil! So for the past however long I can remember there has been a older gentleman by the name of Val who is a greeter at Walmart. This man is a Veteran and very proud to be. You don’t need to know him or even speak to him, although I thank him for his service every time I see him, because he illustrates his pride through the highly decorated Veteran baseball cap he wears……or….used to wear. One day I as I walked in I noticed a bright blue Walmart hat on his head with all the military pins that once adorned his wore out faded military cap and I asked him about it. We both had tears in our eyes as I wished him a blessed day and shook his hand before I left. His reply was simple and full of hurt, “corporate will not allow me to wear that hat anymore while on the clock, because it goes against the dress code”. I was so furious that I demanded to talk to a manager that day and I’m sure she will never forget my face or the angry words that I shared with her. Since then I try not to ever shop at Walmart unless there is no other choice. Today was one of them days that I needed something and stopped into the Okemos Walmart. As I’m standing in line to pay this woman in her Walmart vest steps into line behind me and immediately I was outraged! So one of our own who signed his life away to protect our freedoms and homeland cannot wear his simple old hat but this woman can wear a headscarf proclaiming her love of the Muslim culture and her dedication to Allah!? Kiss my ass Walmart!!!!

“His reply was simple and full of hurt, ‘corporate will not allow me to wear that hat anymore while on the clock, because it goes against the dress code’”.
Young did not go gentle. Not at all.
Young posted this story on Dec. 13. On Thursday, he noted that haters have targeted his site, claiming images on his site violate Facebook rules and generally harassing him on line.
“It’s a sad day when we can’t even support those who fought for our freedoms,” Young posted. “And correct me if I’m wrong to those who site religious freedom, didn’t our service men and women take an oath under God?”
“Thank you Veterans, you will not go unappreciated for your service from me or my family,” Young concluded.
I do not doubt, that the state of America today under the rule of King Obama…is making many of our fallen heroes roll in their graves, including our forefathers.
