New License Plates Available for Decorated Military Personnel, Veterans

Plates are also available by service affiliation, military campaigns.

Members and veterans of the United States Armed Forces decorated for valor or meritorious service during a time of armed conflict can now proudly display their medal through a new series of military license plates offered by PennDOT.

“Members of our armed forces who have received these medals have proven their commitment to their fellow service men and women and to protecting our freedom under the worst of circumstances,” said PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch. “PennDOT is proud to recognize them once more and give them an opportunity to publicly display their distinguished honors.”

PennDOT’s new series of plates offer a design exhibiting one of the following military decorations: Distinguished Service Cross, Distinguished Flying Cross, Navy Cross, Air Force Cross, Silver Star, Bronze Star for Valor and Bronze Star.

Veterans and military personnel interested in these new plates can visit PennDOT’s Driver and Vehicle Services website, www.dmv.state.pa.us, and select the “Military License Plates” link under the “Military Personnel/Veterans” Information Center for a complete listing of available military license plates. The page provides images of each plate and links to the appropriate application form.

In addition to these plates, PennDOT’s Specialty Plate Program offers a variety of license plates including those honoring individuals who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces and in major conflicts from World War II to Operation Enduring Freedom.

The majority of military license plates can be requested by filling out Form MV-150, “Application for U.S. Military Veteran Registration Plate,” which also contains instructions for applying for the plates and the respective fees.

Specialty license plates are also offered for active-duty and reserve military personnel and members of service-related organizations. A link to the listing of these license plates is also on the Military License Plates Web page, and applications must be requested through the approved organization’s local representative.
