In November 2011, an Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran attending classes at an Iowa community college was refused access to a theater performance on campus because the instructor of the cass was concerned the veteran's service dog would disrupt the open-to-the-public event. The student-veteran was a member of a drama class conducting the performance; attendance was mandatory for class members. Not only was the instructor in violation of the student-veteran's civil rights, the incident happened on Veterans Day, which attracted media attention.
