A veteran and his service dog walk into a restaurant…
No, this isn’t a set-up to a joke with a corny punchline. When a man identified as a veteran went to dine at Kathy's Crab House & Family Restaurant in Delaware City, Delaware, a fellow diner lost her cool and began screaming about the presence of his service dog, which he says is for PTSD.
"It's disgusting to have an animal inside of a public restaurant," the diner shouts, as a camera records her three-minute-long adult tantrum.
Another patron gets involved in the screaming match, adding that the veteran fought for the country, shouting, “That’s why he has the dog.”
But this doesn’t sway the offended diner, who calls the vet’s defender a “bitch” and a “whore.”
The veteran also tries to reason with her, asking if she can calm down for “30 seconds.”
"Y'all can't change my goddamn opinion,” she screams. “It should be a separate section for a fucking animal.”
Eventually, others in the restaurant join in screaming at her to get out.
Meanwhile, the service dog, a Great Dane whose harness suggests his name is “PJ,” keeps his cool better than anyone else in the room. Talk about a good boy.

An Air Force Academy sergeant will face an evidence hearing Friday on a string of charges including 10 counts of assault.
Staff Sgt. Mariano Jackson, assigned to the academy's 10th Surgical Operations Squadron, is accused of a series of assaults between 2016 and 2019, most of which involve a victim described as his "intimate partner."

The Pentagon is sending nearly 1,000 more troops to the Middle East as part of an escalating crisis with Iran that defense officials are struggling to explain.
