301.441.  Any person who is a retired member of the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps or Coast Guard may apply for issuance of special motor vehicle license plates for any passenger motor vehicle subject to the registration fees provided in section 301.055, or for a nonlocal property carrying commercial motor vehicle licensed for a gross weight of nine thousand one pounds to twelve thousand pounds as provided in section 301.057, whether such vehicle is owned solely or jointly.  No additional fee shall be charged for a set of special license plates issued pursuant to this section.  Such person shall make application for the special license plates on a form provided by the director of revenue[,] and furnish such proof of retired status from that particular branch of the United States armed forces as the director may require[, and pay an additional fee for each set of special license plates issued equal to the fee charged for personalized license plates].  The plates shall have a white background with a blue and red configuration at the discretion of the advisory committee established in section 301.129.  The director shall then issue license plates bearing the words "RETIRED MILITARY" in preference to the words "SHOW-ME STATE" in a form prescribed by the advisory committee established in section 301.129.  Such license plates shall be made with fully reflective material, shall be clearly visible at night, and shall be aesthetically attractive, as prescribed by section 301.130.
