Wounded soldier loses SFO battle

Wounded soldier loses SFO battle
Afghan vet blocked from flying with device to aid injured jaw


Quote:
Army Lt. Greg Miller thought he'd seen the end of conflict for a while the day he left Afghanistan, with a jaw wired shut from a bullet wound that earned him the Purple Heart.

But Miller found himself in a new conflict Wednesday afternoon at San Francisco International Airport, this time with security screeners who insisted the wire clippers he carried to snap his jaw open in an emergency could not go on the airplane -- a battle he still can't quite believe he lost.
I always forget if they're here to protect the traveling public or discourage the public from flying.
