Can I refuse service at my restaraunt to vets/military or is there a federal law that says I have to serve them (Colorado).

    They are not a protected group in regards to discrimination so you do not have to serve them. But be careful, if they are black or native american or asian they could claim you refused them service for that reason and THAT is illegal. Also it most likely would get posted on the internet that you refused to serve a vet/military person and you might see that you get boycotted.

    as long as its not a form of segregation or anything based on ethnicity,   yes, you are allowed to refuse to do business with veterans.  while they have some perks, they do not have a special status.  soldier in the US is a profession and there are millions of those.

    just make sure they arent women or blacks. you dont want to deal with that as it can be illegal.

    a private business has the right to restrict its clientele..as long as they are willing to accept the consequences of doing so.  while being military is not a protected status, the bad publicity would lead to boycotts,  threats, and other negative attention.  

    its no different than a restaurant refusing to serve a cop, or someone wearing a MAGA hat

    You can not refuse service because they are Military. You can only refuse service if the disrupt other people or pose a danger to others.

    You just asked this question, yes there is federal law. Veteran status is a protected class.
