Tonight has been hectic to say the least…. I went to eat something off the base at a local pizzeria. While my friend is talking to her family; who currently owns this pizza place, a woman walks in and constantly stares at me. As I am in uniform, I return the smile politely…. The woman proceeds to go in and out several times over the course of 10 minutes. His food is ready, and he goes back inside to get his pizza … When he leaves, he looks at me and says “Nice smile” with a lot of sarcasm. I reply “Thank you, have a nice day ma’am” and get on with my day.
Not even 30 seconds later, she comes back and yells at the pizzeria staff “By the way, he’s a phony, my husband is in the military …” you can probably take the rest. I proceed to try to prove that I am not a fake, I even took out my VALID military ID and showed it to him. She kept claiming that my military ID is fake, and proceeds to show me her DEPENDENT military ID, and yells “This is what your ID should look like.”
When I realized that there was no way to persuade this woman that I am not a phony, I politely say, “Tell your husband thank you for the service he has provided me and have a good day.” She runs out of the pizzeria, and back inside, progressively yelling “I dislike you, you son of a bitch,” grabbing my uniform and throwing my cover on the floor, not knowing that I’m a true service member. In a last-ditch effort to leave, he rushes over to me and slaps me across the left side of the face. Being in uniform, I must maintain professionalism, so I stay there and proceed to wish you a good day…. Well, it seems that some of us can’t recognize authenticity when they see it.
Since then, Nolte’s post has been inundated with supportive comments thanking him for his service and praising him for his composure.
