Many thanks to Lloyd Owens for providing this information so that I could forward to all of our members via the wensite!!
For those who have received certain decorations Texas legislators recently passed a bill that expanded acceptable military medals which allow registration fees to be waived.
A military member who has received one of the medals listed on the attached application form will be provided a free set of license plates and vehicleregistration fees will be waived as long as the military member registers thatvehicle in the state of Texas.
One medal can only be used to waive registration for one vehicle. Forinstance, a military member with multiple MSMs can only register one vehicleusing the MSM medal. However, a person who has earned two different types ofmedals listed can register two vehicles in this program, and three differentmedals equal free registration for three vehicles, etc... Keep in mind thatthese license plates depict a military medal, which does identify them aseither a present or former military member.
HOW: Bring the following items with you to the vehicle registration office:
1) A completed application form
2) A copy of your DD214 or Record Brief (vMPF) with the award listed (proofof earned metal)
