I came across this article and found this to be interesting. Apparently it's in the work as a trial experiment and hopefully this will work out in the future. As a military and a frequent flier, it's nice to know that all I need is to swipe my CAC card to the reader and off I go to the gate. I know certain airports have similar process for U.S. military personnel. ATL has head of line privileges for military/dependents at security checkpoint, and ORD has a line specifically for Government/DOD personnel at customs/immigration on flights from overseas. It's great to know that the city is supporting us as a way of saying thank you to defend freedom and democracy around the world. Your thoughts?
Washington (CNN) -- U.S military personnel may someday be treated to expedited screening at airport checkpoints if all goes well with tests that begin Tuesday at a medium-size airport in California.
The program was announced by Transportation Security Administration head John Pistole.
He said the agency is conducting the tests to see if its technology is compatible with the Common Access Cards that are carried by military personnel.
"As part of our risk-based security initiative, we're trying to identify those groups of people that in all likelihood pose no risk. We've been working with the military Department of Defense to try to assess how we can read the military ID cards," Pistole said.
