Veterans License Plate

On our way to Starbucks we stopped behind a car with a Pearl Harbor Survivor license plate. I’ve seen veterans plates before but had no idea there are several types. Made me curious enough to check it out online. There is the “plain” veterans plate, of course, but also specific ones, such as the Pear Harbor Survivor, Medal of Honor, Purple Heart, and Former P.O.W. plates. I had assumed, naively, that veterans get these as a token of gratitude from the state, but no! They cost extra, unless one is disabled and/or receiving financial aid. A portion of the fee goes to support other vets. And, family members of veterans can apply for vet license plates as well, who knew?
