A surviving spouse will be able to keep this plate until he or she remarries, or fails to renew or cancels such registration. The surviving spouse will be subject to an annual fee for the plate.
A Purple Heart medal recipient must prove that he or she has been awarded a Purple Heart in order to receive these plates. Purple Heart recipients are eligible for one (1) set of plates for each Purple Heart medal received.
