Completes assortment available to Pennsylvania residents for all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces
Harrisburg, PA – Members of the Pennsylvania National Guard have a new way to proudly show their service through the display of a military license plate announced today by the Wolf Administration.
"Our Citizen Soldiers have served our commonwealth and the nation with distinction in both domestic and international arenas," said Governor Tom Wolf. "I take pride in sharing the news that their service will be recognized in this way."
The new plates feature the standard Pennsylvania license plate colors of blue, white, and yellow along with a National Guard-approved emblem on the left-hand side of the plate. Pennsylvania is printed at the top of the plate, while PA National Guard is printed at the bottom. This plate may only be used on passenger vehicles and trucks with a registered gross weight of not more than 14,000 pounds.
"Our members of the National Guard are justifiably proud of their service to our state and nation," said PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards. "These new registration plates give them a way to publicly show that pride daily."
Members of the National Guard interested in applying for one of these plates must complete Form MV-150AD, "Application for Members of U.S. Military Registration Plate." The form requires the service member to certify their status as a member of the Pennsylvania National Guard.
"This new plate is an ideal way for our service members to publicly showcase their membership in the National Guard. We want to thank our fellow state agency for providing this service to our National Guard members," said Maj. Gen. Tony Carrelli, Pennsylvania's adjutant general and head of the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs.
The addition of a registration plate recognizing members of the PA National Guard completes an assortment of plates available to Pennsylvania residents with ties to all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. Additional information and images of a variety of military license plates are available at www.dmv.pa.gov via the U.S. Military Veteran Registration Plates Fact Sheet link under the Resources section of Military Personnel/Veterans Information Center. The fee for the plate is $21.
