WICHITA, Kan. With Veterans Day Monday the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) a Wichita's Dwight D. Eisenhower Airport is highlighting its employees.
About 20 TSA employees in Wichita are veterans. At the city's national airport, there's a wall highlighting veterans with the agency.
TSA Supervisor Ryan Vu served in the Army for eight years: three years on active duty and five years as a reserve. He's been with the TSA since 2004.
"We use that training that we got from the military, that discipline that we have, we carry that on to here and we take pride serving the country as a veteran," Vu says. "And the TSA allows us to do that, protect the traveling public."
One benefit for veterans working with the TSA and other government jobs is they can carry time from their service in the military over to go toward retirement from their agency.
