Plates honor fallen soldiers

"On a crisp September Monday, Bernadette Monroe added a new license plate to her Pontiac convertible making it more special. More personal.
The license plate reads 'Honor.' It's in memory of her son, Anthony.
Monroe was the first in North Dakota Monday to receivedthe state's new Gold Star family license plate.
The plates came out of the last legislative session but it was Monroe and others who pushed for a license plate as a way to remember North Dakotans who have died in the line of duty in the military.
Anthony Monroe was 20 when he was killed Oct. 11, 2004, while with the Army Reserves in Iraq.

The Gold Star license plates are available to the immediate families of any member of the military who was killed in the line of duty during a time of active conflict.
The plates were unveiled in the Capitol, with four sets given to families of fallen soldiers."
