TSA To Expedite Screening for Faster Travel For Disabled Military

Posted by washingtonexp on Apr 3, 2013 8:47:00 AM

TSA has made great strides in advancement of security measures since 9/11 to keep travelers safe. However, some of those measures have caused some travelers to feel violated. One past example is the use of graphic airport body scanners. Now, a recent wounded military personnel's encounter with TSA screening has sparked more change in the right direction.

The TSA will begin to expand its' program for expedited screening through airports for inactive-duty and inactive "wounded warriors" reported CNN late last week. The expanding of the expedited screening military program comes as a result of a disabled Marine being requested to remove both of his prosthetic legs. Although he had the prosthetic legs, he had limited mobility. He could not stand of walk on his own merit. The TSA screener, however, asked the Marine to stand or walk, so they could perform examination on the wheelchair. After putting the prosthetic legs back on, he was put through the same screening process at another point while pursuing to travel. The TSA screener denies the allegations.
