WEST CHESTER (February 28) – State Senator Andy Dinniman recently announced that Pennsylvania vehicle owners can now show their support of veterans through a new decorative license plate.

The plate, authorized by Act 194 of 2012, features an image of the American Flag and a Bald Eagle and contains the words “Honoring Our Veterans.”

 

“This is just a small way motorists can show their support for the veterans who served our nation in defense of freedom around the globe,” Dinniman said. “And when you order one of these plates a portion of the payment goes to helping our vets.”

 

The plate is available for passenger cars and light trucks up to 10,000 pounds. The cost is $35, and $15 goes to the Veterans Trust Fund, which is administered by the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs and will be used to support and assist Pennsylvania veterans and their families through grants to veterans service organizations and other charitable organizations.

 

To apply for the new license plate, visit PennDOT’s website at http://www.dmv.state.pa.us/license_plates/special_fund.shtml

 

In addition, for veterans and military personnel who would like to proudly display their service, PennDOT offers a series of plates honoring veterans for the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. The plates feature the standard Pennsylvania license plate colors of blue, white and yellow along with the applicable branch of service emblem or logo on the left side of the plate. Pennsylvania is printed at the top of the plate, with the name of the applicable branch of service at the bottom.

 

Specialized plates are also available for veterans of World War II, Vietnam, Korea, Afghanistan, Iraq, the Kosovo Campaign, the Global War on Terror, and those who survived being a Prisoners of War.

 

Decorated veterans can also display their service with special plates designated for recipients of the Medal of Honor, the Purple Heart, the Bronze Star, the Silver Star, the Bronze Star for Valor, the Distinguished Service Cross, the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Navy Cross and the Air Force Cross.

 

These plates are available to honorably discharged veterans with proper documentation for a $20 fee. For more information visit PennDOT’s website at http://www.dmv.state.pa.us/militarycenter/licenseplates.shtml for a complete listing of available military license plates and links to the application forms.
