In honor of Memorial Day, consider the purchase of a “Support Your Troops” Maine specialty license plate. First issued in November 2007, the fee for the plate is $20 in addition to the regular registration fee.
According to the State of Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles, proceeds from these Maine license plates provide “financial assistance to the members of the Maine National Guard, residents of the State who are members of the Reserves, the families of those members, or will be used for other emergencies and special needs as determined by the Support Your Troops Advisory Board.”
The license plates can be purchased in all Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicle Branch Offices and at many town offices. Vanity license plates are available for the Support Your Troops specialty plate. Search and order a vanity plate online.
