S. 1881 and H.R. 3356, Veterans Expedited TSA Screening Safe Travel Act

Take Action

 

Senators Young (IN) and Duckworth (WI) have introduced S. 1881, and Representatives Gosar (AZ) and Kirkpatrick (AZ) have introduced a companion bill, H.R. 3356.  If enacted, this bill, the Veterans Expedited TSA Screening (VETS) Safe Travel Act, would provide free TSA Pre(R) clearance to veterans with severe disabilities.

Veterans who use prosthetics or wheelchairs know how difficult it can be to get through airport security. Some have been asked to remove prosthetics, transfer from wheelchairs or give up canes that help visually impaired veterans safely navigate their surroundings.  These devices are more than just equipment-they serve as extensions enabling our disabled veterans to live and function more independently.

The VETS Safe Travel Act would give severely disabled veterans the same benefit active-duty service members, Reservists and National Guardsmen are provided.  TSA Pre(R) allows beneficiaries to avoid the significant challenges imposed upon them by modern airport security.  America's severely disabled veterans deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. For these reasons, DAV strongly supports this bill.

Please use the prepared email below or draft your own letter to ask your Representative and Senators to support the VETS Safe Travel Act.

Thank you for participating in the Commander's Action Network.
