(WJLA) - Air travel and security screenings at airports will soon get a little easier for American troops.

Military Times reports that the Department of Defense and TSA have reached an agreement paving the way for expedited screening for service members who are both on official and leisure travel.

About 100 airports will implement the new procedures starting Dec. 20. Military Times says the new rules will excuse military members from taking off their shoes or unpack bags with liquids.
