Lisa McCombs, a decorated Army veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, claims she'd never had any trouble flying with her service dog, a Labrador retriever named Jake. That changed one year ago, when she was barred from boarding a regional American Airlines flight with Jake, who was wearing his service vest and was properly documented at the time, according to a federal lawsuit. McCombs suffers from PTSD and relies on her dog to calm her anxiety and panic before it overwhelms her.
