TSA Pre-check expands to members of the military at 100 airports

This morning, just in time for holiday travel, the Pentagon announced that in cooperation with TSA they will extend “prechecks’ at more than 100 airports to expedite pre-boarding screenings for military personnel.

They have partnered with nine major airline carriers to help facilitate the process.

The new rules start tomorrow and with any luck the “foot soldiers” of Transportation Security will get the message and the required training to facilitate the screening process for military members with proper Department of Defense identification.

The expedited screening will allow service members to leave their shoes on as well as light outerwear, laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on in "select screening lanes."

The Precheck program began in October 2011 after public outcry over how Soldiers and other military members where unduly scrutinized when going through TSA/Homeland Security checks while traveling.

Military members can get additional information at and here on the Pre-check process.
