Can military widows or widowers travel Space-A?

Currently, widows/widowers of active duty/retired military personnel are not entitled to Space-A travel aboard DoD aircraft. There are some members of Congress attempting to change these rules so contact your political representatives to get the current status. Any changes to Space-A eligibility rules will be published as an immediate change to DoD 4515.13r and advertised accordingly (Reiteration HQ AMC/DONP 091704z Mar 99).

NOTE:  While there have been numerous Congressional Bills introduced and passed over the years, none have been implemented into DoD policy to allowing widows or other non-eligible categories (100% DAV, Reservist Depdnents......) to use Space-A.
