Soldiers Move More Easily Through Airport Security

Posted:

As of July 2012, soldiers in uniform and their families are scheduled to be moving more easily through security screening lines at the airport.

Both Transportation Security Administration policies and TSA officials are there to help uniformed service members move though airport security screening.

The "Risk-Based Security Screening for Members of the Armed Forces Act" calls for "expedited security screening services for a member of the armed forces, and.any accompanying family member."

Military service members on orders and in uniform will have access to these expedited security screening procedures.

For instance, soldiers with proper identification are not required to remove their boots or shoes unless the footwear sets off screening equipment.

Unlike civilian travelers, families of service members can obtain gate passes to go with service members to their departure gates to see them off, or to be standing at arrival gates when they get off the plane.

Additionally, the TSA has worked with DOD to make things easier for injured service members.

The Military Severely Injured Joint Services Operations Center Program ensures that any screening is "conducted by TSA screening experts with empathy and respect in order to make the overall experience for the service member as expeditious and pleasant as possible.
