VMF provides services to any veteran, of any generation, who has served honorably. The veteran may have physical and/or mental challenges resulting from a military operation or accident, disease subsequent to military service. Veteran must reside in the continental United States, Hawaii or Alaska.
* The American Disabilities Act (ADA) defines a service animal as one that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. The task(s) performed by the dog must be directly related to the person’s disability. Service animals are permitted in any public spaces when they accompany their veteran. If questioned, a business may ask only two specific questions:
(1) is the dog a service animal required because of a disability?
(2) what work or task has the dog been trained to perform?
Requests for documentation for the dog, demonstrations of its task, or inquiries about the nature of the
veteran's disability are specifically prohibited. For more information about service animals, go to ADA’s website
