New Veteran Award Decals Available

Augusta - Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap announced today that six new commemorative decals are now available to qualified veterans displaying veteran registration plates. The six new decals are the Army Combat Infantry Badge, the Army Combat Medic Badge, the Army Combat Action Badge, the Marine Corps Combat Action Ribbon, the Navy Combat Action Ribbon, and the Air Force Combat Action Medal.

“The Bureau of Motor Vehicles is proud to offer these additional commemorative decals in honor of Maine veterans for their valiant service to our country,” Dunlap stated.

The decals are available at any motor vehicle branch office for a fee of $2.00 per set. To be eligible for the decal, the veteran must have been awarded the specified medal, badge, or ribbon and either have been honorably discharged from the Armed Forces, or have served honorably for three years and re-enlisted.

The six new decals were authorized as a result of legislation sponsored by Representative Kenneth Fletcher of Winslow. The commemorative decals may be displayed on special veteran registration plates and disabled veteran registration plates only. A total of thirty-two different veteran award decals are now available to qualified veterans. The decals can be viewed on the Bureau website at: http://www.maine.gov/sos/bmv/registration/decals.htm

Faded decals may be replaced by visiting a motor vehicle branch office or by emailing a request to: registrations@maine.gov .
