Supporting Our Veterans
Pennsylvania is home to more than one million veterans. Across the Commonwealth, we honor those who have served in our armed forces, who put personal safety and comfort aside for the good of our country. We pay tribute to the brave men and women who protect us and defend freedom and democracy, and we thank them for the rights and privileges of citizenship we enjoy because of their service. There are several ways to demonstrate appreciation and afford our heroes the recognition they deserve:
- Civilians and veterans alike can express their patriotism and support those in need by displaying the “Honoring Our Veterans” license plate on their cars, trucks and motorcycles. The cost is $35 and $15 of the fee goes directly to programs and services for veterans and their families through the Veterans Trust Fund. To apply, click here.
- Those who served can share their story through the “US Military Veterans Registration Plate” program. Plates include those indicating branch of service, war or campaign medal, and other honors and distinctions. To view the options, click here.
- As a show of pride, and to make qualifying for discounts and other benefits easier, honorably discharged veterans can add a “Veterans Designation” to their driver’s license or photo ID. There is no cost for the special symbol, but applicable issuance, renewal or duplication fees apply. To learn more, click here.
