First Time Space-A Travel

I am Navy retiree living in Chicago. When I retired after more than 20 years of service in the USN and USNR, naturally I was looking forward to the retirement pay. But I was also looking forward to being able to take advantage of the privilege of flying on military aircraft for free. I hadn’t been retired long before my wife and I found ourselves in the PAX terminal at Scott AFB, Illinois eager to begin the adventure of Space-A travel. Since then I have made several Space-A trips .What follows is based on my own experience and on a book called The Worldwide Space-A Travel Handbook. This book is available at a website called spaceatravel.com. This book has been of considerable assistance to me. I will speak more about it later.
