Bryan. I became a member of LSVA last year when I retired so far or has been a fountain of information. I have a question about the toll road and bronze star plates. I finally got my bronze star plates for my truck but when I asked HCTRA about free tool they only said DV, PURPLE HEART, or MEDAL OF HONOR. they didn't know anything about the others. Could you give me a reference so I can be better prepared the next time I go in.
