Florida Provides 35 Different Military Plates For Veterans
For those of you who have served and been honorably discharged, here are the Florida Military Plates available to you as veterans. For those who haven’t, here are the license plates you can watch for, on the road, if you’d like to thank a vet.
Florida currently provides 35 different military-themed tags for veterans. They range from simply saying “veteran”, “National Guard”, or “Reserve” to “Medal of Honor Recipient”. There are a just a few rules and (contrary to everything else veteran-related) very little paperwork. A dealership can file the paperwork for these plates on your behalf. You can find a list of required documents at the bottom of the page.
Without Further Adieu, here are your tag options:
Veteran – For any honorably discharged veteran
Woman Veteran – For any honorably discharged female veteran
National Guard – For members of and retirees from the Florida National Guard
U.S. Reserve – For members of and retirees from all five branches of reserve forces
