“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”.
