All veteran license plates are exclusively available to veterans who served during specific wartimes and those who received campaign medals.

“Expanding license plate options for veterans is a wonderful opportunity to honor their service,” Governor Ned Lamont said. “Not only will this allow our state to recognize those who served during specific times of war, but it will also serve as a constant reminder that Connecticut is home to many thousands of veterans who have served our nation admirably. I thank all veterans and the advocates who have worked with our administration to turn this idea into reality.
