Wounded Warrior Screening Program

Week of April 08, 2013

Disabled veterans can now move through airport security checkpoints without having to remove shoes, light jackets or hats, according to a new policy announced March 27, 2013, by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The new policy is part of TSA's Wounded Warrior Screening program. These individuals will be escorted through the security checkpoint and will be eligible for expedited screening through TSA Pre-Check. To be eligible for the service, a wounded warrior or traveling companion must contact the Military Severely Injured Joint Services Operations Center at MSIJSOC@dhs.gov, or 1-888-262-2396, in advance of their travel to provide itinerary information. Those traveling with injured troops or veterans must receive standard screening. For more information, visit the TSA website.
