Disabled Veterans will soon be able to fly military Space-A
Every now and then, Washington seems to occasionally get it right. That happened Wednesday when the Senate approved a measure tucked away in the annual defense authorization bill that expands military Space-A travel to veterans with a VA disability rating of 100 percent.
Only military retirees, meaning those with a blue DD Form 2, and current service members had previously been eligible for Space-A flights. But with this new provision veterans like Tim Britt and his wife, Lanna will soon enjoy this terrific benefit.
