Gov. Scott announces new license plates now available for decorated veterans

Montpelier, Vt. – Governor Phil Scott, the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and the Vermont Office of Veterans Affairs (OVA) announced today that the State is now offering two new license plates to honor Vermont veterans who received the Air Medal and the Bronze Star for their service to our country.

“Our work to honor military veterans is never ending,” said Governor Scott. “We will be forever indebted to the heroes who earned these medals in the line of duty, and this is a small gesture of our appreciation for their bravery, service and devotion to our country and its citizens.”

“Many of us notice license plates as we drive around town and throughout the state, and these two additional license plates for our decorated veterans will enable them to be further recognized by their neighbors, community members, and others around Vermont,” said DMV Commissioner Wanda Minoli.

The Office of Veterans Affairs worked with DMV on graphics of the Air Medal and Bronze Star to create the new license plate designs. Vermonters who have been awarded either medal qualify for the license plate and must first submit an application to the OVA before the DMV can issue the plate.

“This is another valuable way to recognize Vermont veterans and their contributions,” said OVA Director Robert E. Burke.

The DMV offers a variety of license plates for veterans, with a total of 8,485 currently in use on Vermont vehicles. For more information, visit the DMV website.

  1. Veterans – Please remember Phil Scott invited the CCP into our State House for some backslapping and sold us out to an enemy. He violated our Constitutional-God given rights. He supports Joe Biden (Obama’s 3rd term.) Joe Biden has done more damage to our military in one year than any other President. It is election season – no special license plate should allow Phil Scott a pass for being the treasonous, Globist stooge he most certainly has proven himself to be.

  2. Thank you for your efforts to recognize the Veterans in Vermont. But I’ll tell you what, Mr. Scott.
    If you really want to help and recognize Vermont Veterans, I’ll trade you back one of my tin license plates with the Purple Heart on it, if you’ll stop taxing our all of Veterans’ pensions and retirement benefits, not just a bit. Lord knows, Leahy, Sanders and Welch aren’t doing anything about that on the national level.
    So, what do you say, Mr. Scott? Start locally…

    • I should add that there are currently 33 states that don’t tax any Veterans’ pension or retirement benefits. And they still issue free special license plates to honor their Veterans…

  3. It’s about time, our Veterans these “Heros ” need all the respect we can give them, as they
    went above and beyond for our country to achieve these medals !!

    For all of those that say they hate the US, maybe a little time under ” Uncle Sam’s ” tutelage,
    will give you a little purpose in life ………….
