Your speaking for all the Vets now? My brother was an O3 Airborne Ranger, Adjutant of NATO's Medical Battalion at S.H.A.P.E. When he got out, to feed
his family, he worked night shift security guard in Sacramento. He would have taken a TSA job in a second. I would too if it was my only option.
We do not condone this type of idiocy, we would not follow the S.O.P. of intimidation and abuse, or harassment of those that "legally" opt out
of the dangerous radiation scanners.
The TSA knows this, and so doesn't seek us out, as we would be a very big thorn in the side of their true intentions, which are to acclimate the
public at large to draconian overly intrusive pointless and useless "security" measures.
Please provide the source of your TSA's SOP. Combining your above statement, didn't you ever go to your Lieutenant and complain? You can't tell me
that your Lieutenant didn't go up the chain to find a resolution. Being a Lieutenant at one time, I had my butt chewed out a few times and I was
grateful for the LPA. As an Officer, you get an OPR, and you do your best to correct the deficiencies. This is why we need Vets like you, in the TSA,
to speak up, and change this from the inside out.This current administration will be voted out. And the TSA will be changed. Rebuilding the TSA with a
military paradigm is an excellent solution.
Profiling is by far the most logical and useful form of screening, diddling kids and grannies is pure intimidation, PERIOD!
No argument here, I totally agree.
There are many of us Veterans here on ATS, I assume several more will stop by at some point to say basically the same things I have.
Time will tell.
