TSA tac­tics lo­cally ques­tioned

Chattanooga Times Free Press - - OPINION -

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.
