My husband was killed in Vietnam and is buried in the Punch Bowl (National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific) in Hawaii. The children and I would like to take a trip to Hawaii to visit his grave. Can we fly in a Space-A status?

No. Sorry, but widow/ers are not afforded the privilege of Space-A air travel. The rules state that family members must be accompanied by their military sponsor, so naturally this is impossible. There have been proposals advanced, namely by the National Association of Uniformed Services/Society of Military Widows (NAUS/ SMW) (Tel: 1-800-842-3451) and others, to support a change to the DoD Space-A Directive which does not provide for widow/ers of uniformed personnel from using overseas (and any other) Space-A travel.
