“I’m very honored to be here this morning. We been following this Purple Heart license plate for the combat veterans and finally I think—the plan is ready for distribution. I’m so thankful on behalf of the military, the Order of the Purple Heart, and the auxiliary,” Francisco said.

Francisco is encouraging any veteran wounded during combat to take their DD2-14 form to the Department of Revenue and Taxation to receive the new license plate.
