There are many varying kinds of plates that you can apply for and even some plates that you can get without having to be a veteran. Some of the plates that are avail- able are as follows: The first is the standard Veter- an Plate that comes in versions for the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard. Ini- tial fee of $15.00 and a yearly fee of $10.00 are processed for these plates. $5.00 dollars of this an- nual fee goes to the North Dako- ta Veterans Cemetery. You do need to certify on a SFN 51628 that you were a veteran of the United States military. 1 The second plate is the Yellow Ribbon "Support our Veterans" Plate. This plate is available to the general public through the North Dakota Vet- erans Affa'Lrs and you do not need to be a veteran to apply for these plates. The initial fee is $25.00 and the yearly renewal is $25.00 ofwhich $15.00 will be donated to the North Dakota Veterans Emergency Needs Char- itable Fund. The third most common plate is the National Guard Plate and in or- der to receive this plate one has to be a member of the National Guard or a 20+ year retiree to be eligible. In order to apply for these plates one has to contact the Adjutants Generals office and receive a form from them and pay an initial $5.00 fee. Other types of plates include the Disabled American Veterans Plate for those that are 100% disabled as a result of their service. The Gold Star Plate is available to surviving family members whose loved one died while on active duty during a time of military conflict. The Purple Heart plate is available to those that have received a Purple Heart medal for their wounds sustained in combat and the POW Plate for those that have been prisoners of war.
