On Friday, September 19, HHS Secretary John Polanowicz joined RMV Registrar Celia Blue to pick up Veterans' Plates.

On September 19, 2014 Secretary Polanowicz joined RMV Registrar Celia Blue to pick up veteran plates for his Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

On September 19, Health and Human Services Secretary John Polanowicz visited the new Haymarket Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) location and joined Registrar Celia Blue to get his veteran license plates for his Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Secretary Polanowicz, an Army veteran and West Point graduate, joins tens of thousands of Massachusetts veterans who have selected veteran plates to highlight their service and help give back to the veterans’ community.

The $40 special plate fee associated with the standard veterans license plate helps the Soldiers Homes in Chelsea and Holyoke fund services like: residential treatment, social work assistance, and outpatient care for the Commonwealth’s veterans.

Today there are over 40,000 passenger and motorcycle veteran plates on the road, which has yielded more than $6.2 million to support the Soldiers Homes. Specialized plates can recognize veterans and their families for their service, including:

Silver Star

Distinguished Flying Cross

Gold Star Family

Pearl Harbor Survivor

Congressional Medal of Honor

Disabled Vet

National Guard

Purple Heart

Bronze Star

XPOW

Legion of Valor
