Honoring Our Veterans
Nearly a quarter of TSA’s workforce is a veteran or currently serves as an active duty service member in the U.S. armed forces. These veterans, Reservists and National Guard members also serve on the frontlines at airports across the nation protecting the safety and security of the traveling public. TSA is fortunate that the workforce is comprised of veterans that chose to come to work at TSA and continue to apply their expertise to the field of transportation and homeland security.
Our commitment to recruiting and hiring veterans continues, and TSA works collaboratively with the Department of Defense (DoD), veterans groups and other agencies to recruit and hire these talented individuals. We salute all military personnel for their selfless call to duty and their dedication to serving our nation.

Expedited screening procedures reduce, but do not eliminate, screening requirements.
