Veteran's Plates

    Hi guys and gals.
    Some of you are veterans. Some of you are not, but know veterans. So I thought this might be an appropriate place to ask.

    What are the advantages to getting Veteran license plates for your vehicle?
    Does it make it easier to get onto a military base?
    Does it help your car stand out?
    Is it a less expensive way to get the word/name/whatever you want for a vanity plate?
    Do you want to represent your branch of the armed forces, or the conflict you served during?
    Is there some sort of importance to showing solidarity?
    Is the financial contribution to veteran's services involved with the licensing fee much of a motivation?

    Enlighten me. I'm curious.

    Never did anything for me. Least not to my knowledge. I have Mexican plates now. Back when I had veteran plates I got snagged doing 83 in a 55 out in the middle of nowhere. Lady state trooper asked if I really was a fellow "parrothead." I had Margaritaville plate holders I'd picked up on a trip to Key West. She told me she'd like to give a fellow Buffett fan a break but as she put it "everyone gets the same treatment." (which is exactly how it should be) I asked her "wait a minute, you'd give me a break for liking Jimmy Buffett before giving me one for serving my country?" She looked down at the citation she just wrote and said "Oh, didn't even notice you had veteran plates. "Well, thanks for your service and please slow down" as she handed me my ticket. I looked at it and noticed she wrote it for doing 74 which made the fine about half of what it should been.

    1.) Buddy has "National Guard" plates and got only a headlight flash from a Cop doing 90 in a 70 when he was running late for drill.
    2.) You should not get on post easier regardless of Veterans plates. 100% ID Check.
