In the past there have been several discussions and a lot of comments about if or if not 100% P&T Veterans can obtain a TSA Pre Check and how to obtain it.  I just stumbled across this site.  It explains it all for P&T Veterans who have obtained a Military ID Card.  https://www.defensetravel.dod.mil/site/news.cfm?ID=18

So go for it.  On the back of your ID Cards, if you have a Military ID Card, is a 10 digit DOD ID number.  When you make reservations for a flight you give the reservation clerk this number and you have a DOD Pre Check.  I give the reservation clerk this number, as does my wife when she flied (she gives the number on the back of her ID card).  It works every time.

Can this be done for an already booked flight?

Yes.. Call your airline..

The Airlines refer to this as a KNOWN TRAVELER NUMBER..

If your a frequent flier, update your personal profile.. You'll see a line item for Known Traveler #...
Enter your (10) digit #..
On ALL future travel-- it will automatically update when you book, and show on your boarding pass..

Be sure to update your wife/husband..
They will enjoy the same TSA  benefit, whether your traveling together or alone..

My Ret ID was issued in 2013 and does not have that "10 digit number" (that I can find???)  Now what????
Some mornings it just doesn't seem worth it to gnaw through the leather straps.

You need a new ID Card.  I don't know the date when they started putting the DOD ID Number on the cards but it is kind of new.  Go to a DEERS Center and get one of the New ID Cards.  Look up the closest site near you (you can google it by typing "nearest DEERS site to ----- (my zip code)").  Then call the site you want to go to and set up an appointment.  ASK THE DEERS SITE WHAT INFORMATION AND PAPERWORK YOU NEED TO BRING WHEN YOU CALL THEM. I drove 50 miles to the DEERS Site at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard and was politely told that I needed a certified version of wife's birth certificate, not the copy I printed off the Internet.  So we drove 50 miles back home, called the State, got the certified version a week later, called the DEERS Site again but this time I asked what documents I needed and they nicely told me.  So we drove 50 miles again and this time got the ID Card. So look up a DEERS Site, get an appointment, ask them what documents and info to bring and go for it.

Curious. My current retired ID (blue) was issued April of 2012. The DoD ID # is on the front, immediately below the Expiration Date.

Additionally, assuming one is in DEERS, log into https://milconnect.dmdc.osd.mil/milconnect/ and view your Profile.
Your DoD ID # is right there.

US to Japan: YES.
Japan to US: Very unlikely. Doubt that TSA runs security there.

I wanted to follow up on this matter for those interested... I recently flew to Southern California on Southwest and was able to get the Tsa Pre screen for my flight. I simply added my info to my ticket online and bingo! I was able to get through the entire process, checking bags, security etc in less than 10 minutes. That includes walking up a flight of stairs. This was at San Jose CA airport, here in Silicon Valley, a very busy airport.

Cheers

Another good service run by TSA is the "TSA Cares" program. I've used this many times. The TSA rep will call you the day before your flight and assist you from the curb to the plane. They help you get through screening often times moving you through a side gate. If you are with family they are allowed to follow along. Who better to help you through a confusing, stressful situation than the TSA. Each time I've used this the TSA rep has been a veteran and often times of higher authority. This is a fantastic service if you have PTSD or mobility issues.

I've always used TSA Cares and had no problems. It's very easy and they take you right through. It's quicker than PreCheck.

Does the 10 digit number on my VA disability ID card work for this as well?
