The Maine Veterans Commemorative Decal Program was authorized by the Maine Legislature during the last legislative session. The Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) is making the decals available in time for Veteran's Day. Decals may be obtained at any one of the thirteen BMV Branch Offices.
A legislatively appointed task force established 22 decals for display with the veterans' plate. Five decals depict the seal of each branch of the armed services. Decals that represent ten individual awards for bravery, including the Bronze Star or higher, and seven campaign medals awarded for service in a hostile fire zone are also available.
During the press conference, the colorful decals will be unveiled and members of the task force have been invited to attend.
To request the decals a veteran who already has veterans' plates may bring a copy of the DD 214 (report or separation or discharge from active duty) to verify eligibility. The decals may only be used with the veterans' license plate with the red 'V'. The decals have been designed to be placed over the red 'V'. Each set of decals is $2.00.
This is an optional program and the current veterans' license plate with the red 'V' will still be valid without a decal.
