Current Initiatives

The Wyoming Veterans Commission invites the public to attend a ceremony for Wyoming’s state remembrance wreath on Monday, Dec. 12, at the Wyoming State Capitol. The ceremony is part of the “Wreaths Across America” program that honors all veterans and active military members during the holidays. The ceremony begins at 1 p.m.

The Wyoming Veterans Commission will host the ceremony. Featured speakers will be Governor of Wyoming Mark Gordon and the adjutant general of the Wyoming National Guard, Maj. Gen. Gregory Porter.  
 
This annual event seeks to further the WAA mission of “Remember. Honor. Teach.” Their mission is to ensure that the memory of those who served and are serving our country endures. The remembrance wreath will remain at the Capitol rotunda throughout the holiday season.
 
For more information about the ceremony, contact the Wyoming Veterans Commission at (307) 777-8152.
 
National Wreaths Across America Day is on Dec. 17. To learn more about the national efforts, go to www.wreathsacrossamerica.org.

Wyoming Driver License Veteran Designation

To qualify for the designation, the veteran must have served at least one period of honorable service which resulted in the issuing of a DD214. A copy of your separation papers and a verification form must be submitted to the Wyoming Veterans Commission at least one week before going to a WYDOT Driver Exam Station.

Wyoming Military Related License Plates

The vehicle must be titled in the name of the veteran or the veteran may have joint ownership with a member of the immediate family. All special license plates are issued and renewed at the County Treasurer’s Office. All applicants for military-related license plates must be Wyoming residents and meet the eligibility criteria as prescribed by the Wyoming statute. Application, registration, and plate fees can be obtained from the local County Treasurer’s Office.
