HARRISBURG — Pennsylvanians can display their support for military veterans with a new specialized license plate authorized by a state law enacted last year.

The “Honoring Our Veterans” plate costs $35, and nearly half that amount will go to a trust fund run by the state Department of Military and Veterans Affairs.

The money will fund grants to service organizations for veterans and other charities.

The new plates are illustrated with a bald eagle and an American flag.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation began selling them last month.
