Letter: VA official thankful for license plate sales

| November 13, 2008 11:00 PM

Dear Editor:

This letter conveys a big thank you to the veterans in Lincoln County who purchased 348 veteran license plates this year.

Veteran license plates cost $10 and the entire amount is used to fund the State of Montana’s three veterans’ cemeteries – located at Fort Harrison (near Helena), Miles City and Missoula.

All are operated and maintained to National Shrine Standards – the same standard as Arlington National Cemetery – and veteran plate sales is the only state money we receive to keep this program funded.

Please consider the veteran plate upon your next renewal – just show the clerk a copy of your honorable discharge. Call 324-3740 for more information.
