Women who have served in the armed forces will be honored with a new Illinois license plate.

Secretary of State Jesse White unveiled the new design Wednesday.

To be eligible for the new red, white and blue plate, a woman must be a veteran or currently be serving in any branch of the military.

A copy of an active duty military ID or discharge papers must accompany the application.

Female vets can order a random number, personalized or vanity license plates.
