Mimi Huynh served in the U.S. Navy on the USS Kitty Hawk.
She is White. Her husband is a Vietnamese refugee who had a 24-year career with the Navy.
She said her husband offered to help a neighbor with her sprinkler system. Apparently there was a problem with the irrigation head. She originally tweeted her husband had offered to help the neighbor trim her hedge, but Huynh later corrected herself. Instead of being grateful, Huynh said the neighbor told her husband to get out of her country.
