USA / News: Gold Star plates for Gold Star families

Here's an interesting article from the New York Times about Gold Star license plates and the soldiers and families they are intended to honor. The author details his experiences in trying (and failing) to receive a Gold Star plate from the state of Idaho, and the history he uncovered in the process. Currently, 34 of the 50 states issue Gold Star plates in some form, often with very different requirements in place.
