The Transportation Security Administration says beginning later this month, all active-duty service members and on-duty National Guard troops and reservists will be allowed to use the PreCheck lane at the airport.
They do not need to be in uniform, but must have military identification.
Service members will have the same benefits as other PreCheck participants.
They will not need to remove their shoes, nor will they have to remove laptop computers from their bags, or take off light jackets or coats.
The program will begin at the Washington airport and if successful, will expand to others.
