Many people took to Twitter this weekend to express their outrage after a U.S. Airways flight attendant refused to hang up an Army veterans military jacket on a flight. 

According to WSOC-TV, First Sergeant Albert Marle was on a flight between Portland, Ore., and Charlotte, N.C., when he asked a flight attendant to hang his uniform jacket to avoid it being wrinkled. 

The flight attendant refused stating the the coat closet was for first-class passengers only. Sgt. Marle did not express any frustration over the issue and quietly took his seat – many first-class passengers offered and he refused not wanting to cause a fuss. 

Passengers on the flight who witnessed the exchange took to Twitter blasting the airline saying it did not respect our servicemen and women.  

U.S. Airways released a statement Friday apologizing to Sgt. Marle:

“We apologize for the situation and are reviewing the incident internally. We have a long and proud history of serving our military members and hold the men and women who serve our country in the highest regard”.
