A U.S. Army veteran in Minnesota found a threatening handwritten note on the windshield of his car.
Staff Sergeant Thomas Keane is a Purple Heart recipient and served in the U.S. Army for 24 years, Fox 9 News reported. His car is adorned with several stickers that highlight his military service.
Keane says that most people see the stickers and thank him for his service. But he experienced something different April 4.
"I went to turn the car on, and I see the letter on my windshield," Keane told Fox 9 News. "It's just disturbing."
The note, written in orange crayon and filled with spelling errors, reads: "U U.S. soljer, U kill R brothers -- U leave here NOW."
A photo of the note was shared on Facebook by fellow veteran Jonathan Ksepka and has gone viral.
“A fellow veteran living in St Cloud was leaving his house this morning (4/4/16) and found this on the windshield of his van,” Kspeka wrote. “This happened in his driveway while he and his family [were] home! To all my brothers and sisters out there please give this as much visibility as you can. Watch your 6 and stay safe.”
The post has been shared more than 10,000 times in just 48 hours.
“Unless you’ve walked in someone's shoes like the soldiers do because we go to all these different countries and we see all the different backgrounds, be open minded and open hearted,” Keane added. “But always cover your six.”
