This really PISSED me off!!
Congressman: TSA Humiliates Injured Marine
An active-duty Marine who lost both his legs to an Improvised Explosive Device was humiliated by TSA agents after he was forced to remove his prosthetic legs and was then ordered to stand so agents could inspect his wheelchair for explosives.

The incident prompted Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) to fire off a letter to John Pistole, the administrator of the Transportation Security Administration.
“The Marine, whose prosthetics were exposed, was humiliated,” Duncan wrote. “While I recognize the necessity to appropriately screen passengers, I am concerned by the apparent lack of situational awareness and respect among TSA officers – specifically when it comes to the treatment of war wounded.”

Last week a group of Marines recovering from war injuries at Balboa Naval Hospital and Camp Pendleton had been invited to watch a Spring Training baseball game in Phoenix.
On March 13 the Marines were stopped by TSA agents at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The Marine who lost his legs is confined to a wheelchair and had an escort.
Hunter said TSA agents initially directed the injured war veteran to the wrong line.
“A TSA officer asked the Marine to stand and walk to an alternate area, despite the fact that he physically could not stand or walk on his own,” the congressman said.
The Marine, who was not identified, was then forced to remove his legs and then put them back on. At that point he was directed to a secondary screening location.
The escort then photographed the TSA agent as they forced the Marine to again stand while they inspected his wheelchair for explosives.
The Marine, who is still on active duty, produced his military card, but it made no difference.
The Marine’s escort was so infuriated he contacted Hunter’s office.
TSA told Fox News they are looking into matter. According to their policy, passengers with prostheses can be screened without removing them.

The policy further states: “The passenger should inform the Transportation Security Officer (TSO) of the existence of a prosthetic, his or her ability, and of any need for assistance before screening begins. Passengers can use TSA’s Notification Card to communicate discreetly with security officers. However, showing this card or other medical documentation will not exempt a passenger from additional screening when necessary.”
Rep. Hunter said there were a number of TSA officers sitting around who were “unwilling to assist” the injured war veteran.

My son once tore the ligaments in his knee snowboarding while visiting me during x-mas break. When he was to fly home ( he lived with his dad) and we had to use a wheelchair to get him thru the airport. Keeping in mind he was a child ( about 15). When we got to the screening area the agent asked him to stand so he could check the chair i guess and when he couldn't move quick enough for them one grabbed him by his jacket and yanked him out of the chair! I went off on the guy i was so mad, he just turned and walked away without a word and the people in line cheered. That was before you could be detained for talking back. But the treatment of this Marine just disgusts me.

This made me sick to my stomach to know one of our injured Marines was treated like this. There is no wrath worse than the wrath of a mother and I think a group of mothers needs to go to that airport.

This is disgusting!!! Frankly I don't expect much else from the likes of these people. Seems they do 'their best' work when they're screening children and people in a wheelchair!!! :(
