Good news! Space-a privileges to CONUS locations and US territories have been expanded to include 100% disabled vets. Please see the following note from the Patrick AFB Passenger Terminal Facebook page:
“*Attention Space-A Travelers*
Effective 13 August 2018, DOD Veterans with Service-Connected Disabilities rated as Total, are granted Space-Available travel eligibility.
National Defense Authorization Act was signed into law on 13 August 2018. The following changes are implemented:
– Veterans must have DD Form 2765 (Military ID).
– Veterans under this new eligibility will be placed in Category VI and will be authorized to remain in the Space-available backlog up to 60 days.
– Veterans are authorized to travel within the CONUS and to U.S. Territories.
– Eligibility is not extended to dependent family members of veterans.”
We expect to see more information on this change in the weeks to come.
