Marine Corps License Plates


A recent article in the Denver Post said that Colorado has 91 types of specialized (or special interest) license plates, but a trip to the DMV website said there are over 100. Florida is said to lead the nation with over 720 types of specialized license plates on the road. I posted a question to a group of Marines around the country asking what type of Marine Corps license plates, if any, were offered by their state. Pictures will be added as quickly as I can get images online.

Alabama plate
According to Chris, the official DAV plate for Alabama doesn't show branch of service, so he had to do something a little more creative. I'd say he got his point across.

Iowa Veteran Plate
For some reason, Iowa won't put the Globe and Anchor on the Veteran Plate unless you're retired. At least they still allow Rob's license plate frame...

This is the Maryland Marine Corps League plate. You can see that the basic design is similar throughout all three plates pictured

Maryland Marine Corps VMFA-321 plate.  This is the squadron license plate; they are currently flying F/A-18 Hornets
Maryland VMFA-321 license plate. This squadron has enough members to get their custom plate

I need your help: The Maryland plates above are all shown on the Maryland MVA (Motor Vehicle Administration) website, but they have a disclaimer to 'contact the organization' if you are interested in purchasing that plate. For VMFA-321 and other orgnaizational plates, maybe that makes some sense. However, for Marine Reserve, or WWII veteran, who would you contact? I've had two Marines contact me already with this question and unfortunately I have no answers for them at this point.

Missouri Marine plate.  This was from an exceptionally clean-looking F-150 owned by a former Silent Drill Team member (1954-55).  I had to include that Globe and Anchor hitch cover too.

Oklahoma plate
Not only is Chuck's plate a Marine plate, but it's on a Jeep so of course I had to add it here.
