A retired Navy captain is hoping to add some “Semper Fortis” pride to the streets of Virginia.
Roger Hirsh, whose career spanned enlisted, commissioned, and civilian roles in the Navy over 40 years, is leading efforts to make a specialized Navy license plate available to Virginia motorists. Virginia offers more than 250 specialty plates, including designs honoring the Navy Reserve and naval aviators, but does not offer a standalone “Navy” plate.
It's curious to Hirsh, given Virginia's rich heritage of naval service.
“The thing that was bugging me is, I live in a state that as far as the military, is predominately Navy. I would go places and I'd see Coast Guard plates, Marine plates, but never Navy,” said Hirsh, a Life Member of MOAA. “I kept asking, 'Why isn't there one?'”
