The Transportation Security Administration, or TSA, instituted security checks after the
9-11 attacks that are physically challenging for many elderly or disabled people, such
as removing belts, shoes, and going through pat-downs before boarding airplanes.

One group that had a close eye on the federal government shutdown was the Never Forgotten Honor Flight organization. The group flies northern and central Wisconsin veterans to their service memorials in Washington, D.C.
