Question: If a son who is a Marine is hurt overseas, can the parents get an expedited passport to go to see him? How long would it take?

Answer: Yes, parents of a wounded Marine can obtain expedited passports in order to travel overseas. There two ways to get the travel documents within a day or two. One, you can visit the nearest regional passport agency. Fortunately, there not in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.The closest one is the Atlanta Passport Agency.

It is possible to get a passport the same day you submit the application at this agency. Or you may be able to plan your flight so that you have a one-day layover in a city where there is an agency.

An alternative is to employ the assistance of a qualified passport expediting service. There is an additional fee for this service but it may compensate not having to visit the agency yourself. For more information, click the link below.
