Got these for my car. The military haters will hate me, but I earned that EGA even though no military affiliation is required to get the plates. I was a bit disappointed to find out that the EGA is just a sticker rather than something that's part of the plate.

I don't drive to school most of the time, so I'll avoid most of the hipsters. When I do, I park some 1/4 mile off campus anyhow.

They just had an anti-Marine Corps rally on campus a couple weeks back.

Good plates. I have had a Special Plate for a Very long time. Long enough for it to wear out, and an exact number specially re-made for it. Its a Combat Purple Heart, and you MUST show a copy of your DD-214, and Proof from the Military Order of The Purple Heart to get it. Starts out PHA-(then a picture of the Purple Heart), then your Special Number. I will keep this number for the rest of my Life, as it is a low number of the First Bunch made. Since you only earn the Purple Heart from the Military, never felt the need to show I was a Vet. Its Good Oklahoma did this. A few other States have one as well.S/F.

California also has Purple Heart plates as well as Medal of Honor and Disabled Vet plates for 100% disabled vets but those require DD-214 or other evidence to get.

I posted this in the Poolee Hall for Moto.

Oohrah, Ecom. Watch out for those leftist activists.

An M3, Accord? You're living right.
