Any person who has been awarded the military service award known as the "Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal" may apply for Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal motor vehicle license plates for any motor vehicle such person owns, either solely or jointly, other than an apportioned motor vehicle or a commercial motor vehicle licensed in excess of twenty-four thousand pounds gross weight.
2. Any such person shall make application for Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal license plates on a form provided by the director of revenue and furnish such proof as a recipient of the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal as the director may require.

Such license plates shall be made with fully reflective material with a common color scheme and design, shall be clearly visible at night, and shall be aesthetically attractive, as prescribed by section 301.130. Such plates shall also be inscribed with the words "expeditionary service" and bear a reproduction of the Armed Forces expeditionary service ribbon.
3. There shall be a fifteen dollar fee in addition to the regular registration fees charged for each set of Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal license plates issued under this section. A fee for the issuance of personalized license plates under and pursuant to section 301.144 shall not be required for plates issued under this section. There shall be no limit on the number of license plates any person qualified under and pursuant to this section may obtain so long as each set of license plates issued under and pursuant to this section is issued for vehicles owned solely or jointly by such person. License plates issued under and pursuant to the provisions of this section shall not be transferable to any other person except that any registered co-owner of the motor vehicle shall be entitled to operate the motor vehicle with such plates for the duration of the year licensed in the event of the death of the qualified person.
