Winifred Flood holds a photograph of her son, Marine Sgt. Kenneth Flood. Winnie Flood didn’t get to say goodbye to her son in person when he was deployed last month to Afghanistan because the airline she booked to North Carolina wanted an extra $300 to change the date of her flight following her son’s change in deployment dates. Winifred Flood wants the airline to change its policies regarding military parents.
