  • Marine who lost both legs reportedly 'humiliated' at airport
  • Injured troops and vets able to leave on hats, jackets, shoes
File photo

A wounded Marine who was reportedly humiliated by airport security may change the way all injured troops are screened.

They will now be treated just like those in uniform. 

All this in response to video that shows a Marine who lost both his legs moving through security in Phoenix. His escort says the Marine was told to stand and had to take off his prosthetics.

The TSA denies that he had to remove his legs.
