Any member of the United States Military Service who was stationed on or within three miles of the Hawaiian Island of Oahu on December 7, 1941, during the enemy attack on Pearl Harbor and other related military installations may apply for special motor vehicle license plates for one vehicle he owns, either solely or jointly, as provided in this section. Any such person shall make application for the special license plates on a form provided by the director of revenue and pay an additional fee equal to the fee charged for personalized license plates in section 301.144 for the issuance of the license plates provided for herein. Applications for license plates issued under this section shall be accompanied by such proof of eligibility as the director may require.
2. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 301.130, each such license plate shall be embossed with the words "PEARL HARBOR SURVIVOR" at the bottom of the plate in the form prescribed by the advisory committee established in section 301.129. Such license plates shall be made with fully reflective material, shall have a white background with a blue and red configuration at the discretion of the advisory committee established in section 301.129, shall be clearly visible at night, and shall be aesthetically attractive, as prescribed by section 301.130.
Such plates shall be available for issuance either to passenger motor vehicles subject to the registration fees provided in section 301.055, or to nonlocal property-carrying commercial motor vehicles licensed for a gross weight of six thousand pounds up through and including twenty-four thousand pounds as provided in section 301.057.
3. There shall be no limit on the number of license plates any person qualified under this section may obtain so long as each set of license plates issued under this section is issued for a vehicle owned solely or jointly by such person.
License plates issued under the provisions of this section shall not be transferable to any other person except as provided herein. Any registered co-owner of a motor vehicle will be entitled to operate the motor vehicle for the duration of the year licensed in the event of the death of the qualified applicant. Pearl Harbor survivor plates issued under the provisions of this section shall be transferable only to a widow or widower of a Pearl Harbor survivor.
