Veteran fights back after receiving letter saying he doesn't 'look handicapped'

A veteran fought back against a harsh letter placed on his car by someone who assumed he was wrongfully parking in a handicapped space.

The original note says that the writer has consistently seen the car parked in a handicapped space, and also notes that the driver of the car doesn’t have a handicapped sticker.

The writer then comments on the driver’s appearance, saying that he doesn’t "look handicapped" to him. He writer threatens that he snapped a photo of his license plate.

The veteran addressed in the original letter then offers his rebuttal in the form of a typed letter.

He says that he doesn’t need a handicapped placard because he has a Disabled Veteran license plate, which is something he was surprised the writer missed while supposedly snapping a photo of his plate. He also says that although he may not appear handicapped to the writer, his combat-sustained injuries say otherwise.

"I can assure you that the amount of pain I feel in my lower body from walking due to combat-sustained injuries far supersedes any level of pain you have ever felt in your entire life. Or maybe not ... who am I to say? After all, I don't even know who you are," the vet writes.

It's unclear right now how or if the author of the original letter ever saw the veteran's letter.
