Space A Travel Eligibility for P/T Service Connected Disabled Veterans

Petition to Amend United States Code, title 10, section 4744 to include P/T 100% Service Connected Disabled Veterans eligibility into Category 7 of the Space A Travel Flight Program Benefit for available unused passenger seats.

Space available travel is a privilege that derives, in part, from United States Code, title 10, section 4744, which states, "officers and members of the Military Departments & their families, when space is available, may be transported on vessels operated by any military transport agency of the Department of Defense". Space available travel is defined as "travel aboard DoD owned or controlled aircraft and occurs when aircraft are not fully booked with passengers traveling under orders". It is a privilege offered to United States Uniformed Services members, DoD personnel & other entitled persons. Out of the (6) Categories of current & former military service members. Our Permanent & Total 100% Service Connected Disabled American Veterans, who served our country, were discharged under Honorable Conditions currently are NOT entitled to this privileged use of the Air Mobile Command Space A Flight travel Program. Currently our active duty service members & dependents, civilian employees of the department of defense & family members, DoD school teachers & family members, Foreign exchange students of the DoD, students, retired service members & dependents, ROTC candidates, the USO, Red Cross Personnel to Boy Scott Leaders, etc., are all entitled under the 6 Categories. This privileged is extended to just about anybody and everybody, but the service member who served their country and was injured with a service connected injury that has become a permanent & total disability because of it. SO, WE NEED YOUR HELP! RIGHT this WRONG! By signing you are letting your Legislator's know, they need to amend title 10 to include a Category 7 which will entitle all military service members with a 100% PT service connected disability, the privileged to be eligible use of the Space A Travel Program. Thank You!

I ask only to be included to the group of existing beneficiaries some who their eligibility before mine could come under question if exposed to the scrutiny of the American voters.
