|Nova, I'm not questioning your patriotism at all! I'm a man, and I think I can sypathize with a woman concerning child birth, but I can't empathize with her because I've never experienced childbirth. That's the context I was speaking from. And I'm not asking the gov't to reinvent the wheel by wondering why they can't use a good old American outfit's guidance.
And Cooper, our VA improperly used the direction outlined in a notice of rule from the DOJ, signed by Eric Holder in 2010, to impliment the restrictions on SD's at our facility. As it turns out, we were notified of yesterday, (I was at work until 10pm so I didn't get the message until long after my rants!!!), after much protest from local veterans, they corrected themselves, after it was slammed down their throats, that Title 40 of the US Code was the guidance they were required to follow. the restrictions they "misunderstood" don't deal with access, they deal with what type of service dogs the VA will PAY for; at least while a three year study is ongoing observing the efficacy of psychiatric SD's. So today as many of our group as is available will be spending time visiting the VA with our SD's in celebration...peacefully, and respectfully of course! (In the message we recieved, they stated that they had recieved a "change" dated Aug, 2013...it was actually NOT a change, and it was 2012 that the information they used from the Federal Register you quoted was published...
