Vietnamese Navy Veteran Offers to Help Neighbor With Yard Work, Gets Told ‘Get Out of My Country’
A Vietnamese refugee who served in the Navy as an electronics technicians chief for 24 years was told to “get out of my country” and “has no right to be here” after offering a neighbor assistance with her sprinkler system.
Mimi Huynh, a U.S Navy Veteran who served on the USS Kitty Hawk, took to Twitter after a racist incident unfolded between her husband, Wally Huynh, and her neighbor after he offered her yard help.
My husband just tried to help a neighbor with hedge trimming.
She yelled at him to get out of her country, he has no right to be here.
When I got outside I shut her down.
