    Thanks for being here for those of us who would like to stop the foolishness of the TSA. I'm not much of a traveler but will not subject myself to radiation or groping. My husband who is a retired officer in the Marine Corps was recently chosen to be scanned at the Denver airport and that pretty much sent me over the top and motivated me to become involved in making a change. I recently retired and I am on a mission to write every legislator, airline, airport and anyone else I think could help by email or snail mail. I've got money for stamps and all the time in the world to get this done. I live in Washington state and recent episodes of the TSA's abuses that have happened at Seatac airport have put a fire in my belly to never give up until the TSA is stopped and real security is put into place.

    Welcome, Monica47!
    I know what a great feeling it is to finally find the TUG.
    There are a number of us here who fly from Seatac, so as a subgroup we could organize for local actions in addition to national efforts. So glad to have you here.

    Welcome to TUG, Monica!

    I'm overjoyed to hear that you intend to be politically active about the travesty that is the TSA. Please keep us updated on your efforts and feel free to ask for help in our PPPA forum.

    Glad you found us, Monica! I recently retired also and now have time to devote to letter-writing also. My congressional reps are going to get really tired of hearing from me.

    Welcome Monica - my parents are in the San Juan Islands so I fly in and out of SeaTac often. It's gotten ugly there. Happy to have you with us.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome. I've checked out other sites and forums but this is the best one I've found. Everyone seems very informative and serious about making changes instead of just complaining. It is good to vent but it is also vital to do something constructive to cause people to open up their eyes and see what is really going on in our airports at the hands of the TSA.
