I was doing my usual internet surfing this morning while watching a good classic nineties Christmas episode of Family Matters. In any event I came across an article which discusses how Congress is working on legislation to be sent to the president in which military and their families on orders would move pass airport security faster.
Here’s the kicker: Service members would have to be in uniform!
I don”t know about you but frankly during PCS moves when we have flown hubby prefers to be comfortable and not in uniform. In addition we honestly don’t want to stand out when traveling. Some people may not believe it but service members can and have been targets in the past. I realize the service members are no strangers to traveling in uniform but I just feel that since we have to show military ID anyway , wouldn’t that be just as acceptable?
In all fairness this bill would make it easier for service members who are also traveling back on orders from overseas so that they wouldn’t have to remove alot of the medal and attachments that come with wearing a uniform. Essentially this bill was created so that service members could quickly pass through a security screening process that isn’ t for them. I mean after all they are the ones freaking going to war (supposedly) for the reasons these security procedures were created in the first place.
Check out the article here.
Are you comfortable traveling on a PCS move with your spouse in uniform? Why or Why not?
