“As a marine, we’ve always had someone there to watch our backs...Having Atlas at my side all the time gives me the same sense of security,” Nic Days says of his service dog.
"I've never been asked to leave anywhere because of my dog," Mann, who served in the Army for 11 years, said.
“I just got sick and tired of being turned away... I had to step up and demand more action,” Robbie Esper, who is legally deaf and blind, says.
