COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio is introducing a special license plate available for immediate relatives of any member of the U.S. armed forces who died outside a combat zone while serving honorably in the military.

The “military sacrifice” plate being unveiled by officials on Tuesday was made possible through a law that took effect in March.

It is being offered for spouses, children, parents, grandparents and siblings of qualifying service members. The Bureau of Motor Vehicles says they’ll have to submit affidavits verifying those relationships and pay regular registration fees to get the special plates.

The new design joins about 40 special license plates that the state offers to recognize veterans’ service and recipients of certain military medals.
