In honor of Women’s History Month, the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs is urging residents to consider purchasing an Honoring Our Women Veterans license plate to recognize the important role women veterans have played in the nation’s history through their military service. Each plate costs $37, with $15 going to the Pennsylvania Veterans’ Trust Fund.
“More than 66,000 women veterans reside in Pennsylvania and we are proud to recognize their incredible service to our nation by offering the Honoring Our Women Veterans license plate,” said Brig. Gen. (PA) Maureen Weigl, deputy adjutant general of Veterans Affairs. “The contributions to our freedom by women veterans are vast and impressive. By purchasing and displaying one of these license plates, we can all show our gratitude for their military accomplishments.”
The Honoring Our Women Veterans license plate is available for passenger cars or trucks with a registered gross weight of not more than 14,000 pounds.
The VTF issues grants to statewide charitable organizations that aid veterans service organizations and county directors of veterans affairs. The grants are used to assist veterans in need of shelter and necessities of living, among other services.
“PennDOT is proud to offer this special license plate and honor Pennsylvania’s women veterans who have made significant contributions to our military efforts in peacetime and in war,” said PennDOT Secretary Yassmin Gramian. “The plate is available for purchase by anyone who wants to show their appreciation for the service of women veterans.”
Additionally, Honoring Our Veterans license plates for passenger cars, trucks with a registered gross weight of not more than 14,000 pounds, and motorcycles are available for $38 each, with $15 benefitting the VTF.
In addition to the sales of these license plates, there are several other programs designed to help fund the VTF in support of Pennsylvania’s nearly 800,000 veterans. To learn more, visit vtf.pa.gov
