NJ Assembly Panel To Consider “Gold Star” Plates

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Legislation that would create special license plates for parents and close relatives of American troops killed while serving their country will go before a New Jersey Assembly panel on Monday.

The bill being considered by the Military and Veteran’s Affairs committee would authorize “Gold Star Family” plates.

They would be available to the parents, siblings, spouse, children, stepparents and adoptive parents of servicemen and servicewomen who lost their lives while on active duty. There would be no charge for the plates, whose design would include a gold star and the words “Gold Star Family.”

New Jersey is one of three states that don’t have some version of the “Gold Star” plates.

    Juan Valdez if that is really his name should pull his head out of the Eternal Tunnel of Darkness and grow up. Our Children and loved ones died fighting for the freedoms that he so much enjoys. Why can we Gold Star Families anf the State of New Jersey honor our Fallen Heroes?

    I think the gold star plate is stupid idea………. just like people scamed money out of victims for 9-11 . the plates serve no purpose. Arent the American Flags enough anymore? I lost someone close to me and would never exploit that I lost a relative by showing a Gold Star Plate. another way for the Municipalities to waste money when they should be spending in on the people in the community who really need it.
