I did recently read an article talking about the fine line between a service animal and a therapy animal.
Apparently therapy animals do not have the same rights as service animals. The issue is that many people try to pass off their dogs as service animals, and they buy the vests online, etc. to get preferred treatment.

Noted. AA needs to be instructed on how to treat the soldier that was on the front lines. That being the human and animal.
