Summer is prime time for military and veteran families to take advantage of space available (Space-A) travel. Veteran John Jackson is somewhat of an expert in mastering this great military perk. Here are his favorite Space-A travel resources. At the top of the list is his own website which is a wealth of info for military, Space-A travel.
