OKLAHOMA -- There's a new specialty license plate that's now available to order in Oklahoma with the words "You Are Not Forgotten" at the bottom.

The new plates were made to raise awareness for and honor veterans who endured being prisoners of war, or were missing in action for a time.

Like any other specialty plate, they cost $38. However, $20 of that amount will be directed to the Oklahoma Department of Veteran Affairs.

One-hundred plates must be ordered before the new design becomes official, so the veterans advocacy group Rolling Thunder is asking that Oklahomans buy a plate for at least one of their vehicles.
