TSA tactics locally questioned
I am almost 74 years old and have been living in the same place for over 25 years. I am a 100 percent disabled veteran. I went through security at Chattanooga Airport on Jan. 2. I had just renewed my license in Rome, Ga., so I had the paper copy until I get my actual license.
The TSA [Transportation Security Administration] would not accept my driver’s license or my VA card with my photo on it. I went through a thorough and embarrassing search. I understand they have an important job to do, but after being stretched and groped in front of everyone, it was traumatic. I had a choice of doing it privately, but I was scared to go back to the private area with them. I want nothing from these people, but I do feel their tactics should be exposed.
