County allocations system. New formats 0AA 000, 00A 000, 00A A00, 00A AA0.

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

Branch of service indicated at left. All branches share a common serial range. 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.
