A veteran who served his country in Vietnam plans to protest outside Union Station Thursday to remind the community about the Americans with Disabilities Act after a clerk at the post office refused to allow his service dog inside.
So the argument can be made that this Brother Veteran should have had his dogs’ papers on him. But let’s be honest, how many people are trying to fake “having a service dog”?
Honestly, I hate seeing Veterans get treated like this and the postal employee should at very least be required to apologize, and at most be fired for discrimination against the disabled.
“Michael Poland tells FOX 4 he was asked to leave the post office because he couldn’t prove his dog was a service dog. He says he walked into the post office to mail a letter Wednesday, and the clerk told him he would have to leave if he couldn’t prove his dog was a service dog by some sort of ID.
Poland said a similar incident happened earlier in the week with another veteran, who eventually left without picking up a package. After the police were called and tried to explain, the clerk agreed to let Poland in but under escort, which is still discrimination against Poland.”
