Very interesting back story from Sarge on the 0002 plate.  "Back in the 80's I was in the Marine Corps Reserve stationed up at NAS Willow Grove. I assisted our admin officer with preparing the paperwork necessary to request the DMV issue specialty plates for the reserves. We of course were the first to be notified of the DMV's approval and of course the first to apply for the plates. He received number one and I, number two. Years later I lost the plate when my truck was scrapped and I never expected to ever see it again but sure enough I ended up finding it at the Chesapeake show."
