A Viet Nam Vet was kicked off a US Airways plane Saturday when he refused to make his service dog, a Golden Retriever, lay on the floor under the seat.
The ADA specifies, in regards to Service Animals:
A person with a disability cannot be asked to remove his service animal from the premises unless: (1) the dog is out of control and the handler does not take effective action to control it or (2) the dog is not housebroken.
Although the Vet got a little hot, the fact is he DID earn great honor and respect by serving our country. Furthermore, these service dogs are typically the most well-behaved and disciplined animals, taught to react properly in an emergency.

The seat next to the Vet was empty, there was no indication the Golden was misbehaving in any way.
Have a heart US Airways: if anything, this service dog might have garnered untold goodwill and even been a tremendous help in the event of an unforeseen crisis.
