Personalized Veteran plates are available as passenger, truck or motorcycle plates.

Personalized Vet plates come in two categories. First, there are Veteran plates for a particular branch of service, bearing the standard emblems of the Army, Navy, Air Force, etc:


Second, there are Unit Designator plates, showing designators for particular military units. Here are the first few emblems I saw on the road (there are now many more)r:

According to the Alaska DMV, from their page about veteran plates:

"In addition to the following plates, Unit Designator Personalized Veteran Plates are also available. Contact George Gaguzis at 907-269-5559 for further information on Unit Designator Vet Plates. A brochure showing samples of the new personalized Vet plates can be obtained at a DMV office."

Here are some actual plates I've seen. It used to be that vanities could not be requested using an 'AAA999' serial, such that the VAR101 plate below would not have been allowed, to potential collisions with other plates like other Veteran plates, but this rule was later relaxed.
