COPY-New license plates available to women veterans
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Women veterans can now purchase license plates in Minnesota honoring their service.
The newly designed Women Veterans' License Plate bears the inscription "Woman Veteran." They are the first veterans plates in Minnesota that specifically refer to women who have served in the military.
The bill's author, state Sen. Alice Johnson, says the license plate is "a small way Minnesota can recognize, thank and honor" female veterans.
A group of women veterans will gather at the Town Square DMV in St. Paul on Friday to purchase the first plates. Any woman wanting a plate should bring her discharge papers to the DMV and request a Women Veterans plate. Motorcycle and disabled plates also are available.
Estimated costs for the application and fees are $20.
