Washington, D.C. - There are concerns about a program to help injured veterans at TSA airport checkpoints.
One federal lawmaker fired off a complaint letter to the head of the TSA saying it’s failing to let severely injured veterans know about a program designed to help them at airport checkpoints.
The TSA's program for injured veterans is supposed to reduce any difficulties moving through the screening process.
One lawmaker says a toll free number and web site don't work properly, failing to quickly connect veterans to the TSA.
There’s been no response yet from the TSA.
A veteran’s advocacy group called VetsFirst says you can call the TSA Cares helpline number at 1-855-787-2227, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. local time, excluding federal holidays.
