    Pvt. Carlos Vilan, of Dugway, is the kind of traveler and soldier who worries about other people. So, when he wears his uniform and military boots when going through a traditional airport security check, he gets concerned about holding up those behind him.

    That’s why he said he appreciated the Transportation Security Administration’s Pre√ program Monday as he used the screening that has just been made available at Salt Lake City International Airport this week.

    It’s pretty good," said Vilan. "It speeds up the process for civilians because they don’t have to wait for me to take off my boots."

    The program, which has been operational at Salt Lake International Airport since February of 2012 when it was first introduced at Terminal Two, is an expedited screening program that allows pre-cleared travelers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case and their liquid gels in carry-on in select screening lines.
