The license plates shall be restricted to use on passenger cars, pickup trucks, recreational vehicles, motorcycles, and vans. The military honor license plate shall be known as the "Bronze Star Medal" license plate and shall bear a likeness of the Bronze Star Medal centered on the left side of the license plate and the words "Bronze Star Medal" centered on the bottom of the plate under the license plate number.

            C. The fee for this license plate shall be the standard motor vehicle registration license fee provided for in R.S. 47:463.

            (2) Except as otherwise provided in this Paragraph, each military honor license plate issued pursuant to this Section shall be returned to the secretary upon the death of the person to whom the plate was issued. A surviving spouse of a person to whom a license plate was issued pursuant to this Section may retain a license plate issued pursuant to this Section, provided the surviving spouse has not remarried and provided the surviving spouse applies to the secretary for a transfer of the license plate to the surviving spouse. A military honor license plate transferred to a surviving spouse pursuant to this Paragraph shall be returned to the secretary upon the death or remarriage of the surviving spouse. In the event that a Bronze Star Medal recipient holds more than one military honor license plate at the time the Bronze Star Medal recipient dies, the surviving spouse may determine which of the license plates the surviving spouse wishes to retain.
