An Iraq war veteran who went on a shopping trip last week, returned to his vehicle to find a note left on the windshield telling him that “all of you Islamophobe vets deserve to die.”

The anonymous message writer indicated that his rage sparked due to the vehicle’s Purple Heart and Iraq War Veteran stickers.


A simple trip to the store ended with a veteran getting a hateful letter left on his car.

When a local Iraq War veteran went shopping Thursday morning, he did not expect to find an anonymous note with ugly language left on his car.

The letter blasted the Marine for having a Purple Heart and serving overseas. It stated, “All of you Islamaphobe vets deserve to die.”

The note has people shaking their heads. Some call the author pathetic.

The entire note left on the Iraq War veteran’s windshield reads:

“I see you have a purple heart sticker and Iraq war veteran sticker.  It’s too bad that you were only wounded, the world would be better if you were killed.  All of you Islamaphobes vets deserve to die!”

The Warren County sheriff’s office explains that it is illegal to leave a note on a windshield and that they would examine if there was any “potential criminality.”

Lt. Steven Stockdale told News channel 10 that “it takes a lot more courage to strap on an 80 pound pack and go to the Middle East and fight for your country than it does to scribble on a note and leave it cowardly behind on somebody’s windshield.”
