Pride in that Military ID


We just returned from a great vacation with many warm waters to swim in and sunsets to enjoy. It also included zip lining in a rain forest which was a great time(and kept us young thinking). But one simple event during our return travels made me feel great!

As we entered the security line at a US airport I pulled out my military ID to prove that my name and picture matched the ticket for the friendly TSA agent at the beginning of a long line. Instead of a rudimentary proceed wave of the hand, I received a "Thank you for your Service"! I felt great to be recognized by a busy hassled person. I realized that we can all make a difference each and every day on how we treat and respond to others! She was busy; did not need to say anything, but took the time to recognize that I had served this great country too!

Do you use your military ID card?
I tend to use it when asked for ID instead of my driver's license due to habit. I have had a few folks look at it and say, "Do you have a driver's license"? Depending on the time, event and how the question is asked I sometimes take the time to explain how I earned this ID and why it is a more reliable form of ID than a drivers license. Most respond well and understand after my quick explanation why I use it.

PS: We went through a lot of security screenings and since it included overseas travel we had our passports for much of the travel. I must say that I found the TSA personnel in the US to be professional and expeditious during this part of the travel. Also, they were more thorough which made me more comfortable. No one likes this process but at least we are safer because of it.

  1. Very nice! When I picked up my husband for R&R at our local airport he was of course in uniform. We had three or four people come up to us to shake his hand and say "Thank You". I could only beam with pride. In fact, when I had to bring him back when R&R was done the TA personnel gave him a little snack-bag (along with another soldier coming through at the same time). Sometimes it is just the little things that can warm our hearts.

    Being a military mom of two soldiers, whenever my husband and I travel, I try to thank every soldier we see. And when our son in law came home for R and R at Christmas time, he said that many people thanked him for his service. It's been nearly 11 years since our daughter began her journey with the military, and yet our pride has only grown in her, our son in law Stephen, and in all of our military. We have met so many wonderful soldiers - officers and enlisted - through their service. And so, I will say, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.
    I have seen some of the sacrifices our soldiers make, the willingness to fight and defend on foreign soil (even if that soil is actually sand) not the least of these sacrifices, and all taken in stride because this is the life they (you) have chosen.
    God bless you - our nation is protected by the best of the best.
