The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation recently made available to the public a new “Honoring Our Veterans” license plate, which allows motorists to pay tribute to former military service members while supporting the efforts of veterans’ organizations, according to Senator Scott E. Hutchinson.
The plate is available for passenger cars and light trucks and costs $35. Fifteen dollars from the sale of each license plate goes to the Veterans Trust Fund administered by the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. The funds will be used to support and assist Pennsylvania veterans and their families through grants to veterans’ service organizations and other charitable organizations.
The plate, authorized by Act 194 of 2012, features an image of the American flag and a bald eagle as well as the words “Honoring Our Veterans.”
“Pennsylvanians have proudly served our nation throughout history and today our state is home to more than 900,000 veterans,” said Senator Hutchinson. “The “Honoring Our Veterans” plate allows Pennsylvania motorists to proudly show their support for their fellow citizens while providing financial support for the worthwhile agencies that help our veterans.”
