As a lead transportation security officer at John F. Kennedy International Airport, I am responsible for the security screening of passengers and baggage, as well as supervising and providing training and leadership to other TSA officers.
For most Americans, the holidays are a time for traveling to see loved ones near and far. Whether you are traveling by plane, train, or automobile, chances are you will have at least one connected device in tow.
