I do not know if this has been published here, but for all you "Texans", this sounds like a great benefit!

This is verified and legit. Google "Texas VTR-421" for the form and more details

WHAT: Free Texas vehicle license plates & lifetime registration for members
who have received certain decorations Texas legislators recently passed a bill
that expanded acceptable military medals which allow registration fees to be
waived.

A military member who has received one of the medals listed on the attached
application form will be provided a free set of license plates and vehicle
registration fees will be waived as long as the military member registers that
vehicle in the state of Texas.

One medal can only be used to waive registration for one vehicle. For
instance, a military member with multiple MSMs can only register one vehicle
using the MSM medal. However, a person who has earned two different types of
medals listed can register two vehicles in this program, and three different
medals equal free registration for three vehicles, etc... Keep in mind that
these license plates depict a military medal, which does identify them as
either a present or former military member.

HOW: Bring the following items with you to the vehicle registration office:

1) A completed application form
2) A copy of your DD214 or Record Brief (vMPF) with the award listed (proof of
earned metal)
3) ID
