South Carolina’s chiefs-only license plates raise money for museum ships

You might not have a decal on your car to tell the world about your Navy service much longer, but active and retired chiefs in at least one state have an alternative option — one open only to them.

South Carolina began issuing chiefs-only license plates (that’s one on the right) earlier this month, according to a news release issued by the Patriots Point Foundation, the fundraising group behind the Charleston Harbor-based museum that includes the decommissioned aircraft carrier Yorktown.

The plate costs $60 and has been endorsed by the South Carolina-based chiefs’ messes at Nuclear Power Training Unit Charleston and Naval Nuclear Power Training Command, according to the release. Proceeds from plate sales will benefit the museum’s restoration and preservation efforts, according to the release.
