§ 404-c. Distinctive plates for former prisoners of war. 1. Any former
prisoner of war residing in this state or the spouse of any such former

the words "former prisoner of war". If a distinctive plate is issued to
a former prisoner of war pursuant to this section, additional
distinctive plates may be issued for every vehicle registered in the

of such former prisoner of war. Application for said license plate shall

commissioner shall prescribe.

2. The distinctive plate authorized herein shall be issued upon proof,
satisfactory to the commissioner, that the applicant or the spouse of
the applicant is a former prisoner of war.

3. A distinctive plate issued pursuant to this section shall be issued
in the same manner as other number plates upon payment of the regular
registration fee prescribed by section four hundred one of this chapter
provided, however, that no additional service charge shall be charged
for such plate.

4. The unremarried widow or widower of a former prisoner of war
married to such former prisoner at the time of his or her imprisonment
shall be included in the term "spouse" for the purposes of this section.
A distinctive plate issued pursuant to this subdivision shall be issued
in the same manner as other number plates upon the payment of the
regular registration fee prescribed by section four hundred one of this
chapter, provided, however, that no additional service charge shall be
charged for such plate.

5. Notwithstanding subdivision three of this section and the fees
prescribed or permitted by section four hundred one of this article,
there shall be no charge for the issuance of a number plate pursuant to
this section to a former prisoner of war, nor shall there be imposed an
additional service charge for the issuance of such a plate to such a
person. Furthermore, upon the issuance of a distinctive plate pursuant
to this section, such a former prisoner of war shall be exempt from the
payment of any fees relating to the registration or renewal thereof as
prescribed by section four hundred one of this article.
