Company anti-war e-mail angers military supporters
MILWAUKEE The employee of a Milwaukee-area company who sent a curt e-mail reply to a U-S soldier has reportedly been fired.
Milwaukee T-V station W-T-M-J is reporting that Bargain Suppliers of West Allis let the employee go within the last 24 hours.
At issue was an e-mail exchange from earlier this month. Sergeant Jason Hess _ who's stationed in Taji, Iraq _ e-mailed the company inquiring about floor mats.
The worker's two-line response says the company doesn't ship to military addresses. Then it says that if Hess were sensible, he and his troops would pull out of Iraq.
The reply has circulated on the Internet, angering military supporters who are now calling for a boycott.
Company vice president Sajid Nasir says the firm's owner has received threatening messages. West Allis police say they're monitoring the situation but haven't received reports of any crimes.
