Plain white like the purple heart, with "South Dakota" in blue at the top, number in red, "Bronze Star" in bronze at the bottom. It has a picture of the Bronze star medal to the left of the serial number.

There is also a "Bronze Star With Valor" plate. Same style as the Bronze Star plate, but with the different slogan. High: F00006 2014-01-24 Keith Dickson

Veteran

Report a new high History

Veteran plates are relatively new and, like the generic specialty plate and many non-passenger types, use a modified version of the 2006 passenger base, with Mt. Rushmore shrunk to the bottom of the plate rather than the background. Serial format: 1234A.
