6. The captain is a jerk and that's poor policing, but I think the gentleman is mistaken about the law.

I haven't confirmed it, but I think that Texas law now requires a handicapped placard /sticker to use the handicapped parking, a disabled veteran plate is not enough.

7. Nope. The law specifically states DV plates can park in handicapped spaces.

Including cars with out of state DV plates. From the Texas State Government page:

House Bill 965 entitles a veteran to register, for the person's own use, any number of
motor vehicles for which the registrant may be issued specialty license plates for disabled
veterans and disabled parking placards.

House Bill 2020 authorizes a vehicle to be parked for an unlimited period in a parking
space or area designated for the disabled if the vehicle displays license plates issued by
another state of the United States indicating that the owner or operator of the vehicle is a
disabled veteran of the United States armed forces

8. That's from 2009.

I believe it was changed last year, like the young officer said.

I'll look for it.

9. Change regarding disabled veterans plates, effective January 1, 2022.

https://www.txdmv.gov/sites/default/files/body-files/SB792_DV-Plates-Parking.pdf

[...]

As of January 1, 2022, anyone parking in a disabled parking space must have a disabled person license plate or a disabled parking placard that features the International Symbol of Access (ISA). Currently, disabled veteran license plates do not feature the ISA.

Texans with disabled veteran license plates wishing to use disabled parking spaces in 2022 may apply for a disabled parking placard or for a new disabled veteran license plate featuring the ISA. The veteran must meet the eligibility requirements for a disabled parking placard or disabled person license plate featuring the ISA. Not all disabilities that qualify a veteran for disabled veteran license plates will qualify a veteran for a disabled veteran license plate featuring the ISA.

As of January 1, 2022, you may apply for a disabled parking placard and/or disabled veteran license plate at the office of your local county tax assessor-collector:

1. For a disabled parking placard, download the Application for Persons with Disabilities Parking Placard and/or License Plate (Form VTR-214):
https://www.txdmv.gov/sites/default/files/form_files/VTR-214.pdf.

2. For a disabled veteran license plate with or without the ISA, download the Application for
Disabled Veteran License Plates and/or Parking Placard (Form VTR-615):
https://www.txdmv.gov/sites/default/files/form_files/VTR-615.pdf.

3. Have your doctor or health care provider complete the Disability Statement section of the
application or provide an original prescription.

4. Submit the completed application(s) and payment (if applicable) to your county tax office.
Currently issued disabled parking placards will remain valid; however, the new requirements must be met at time of renewal.

10. I stand corrected.

And, sadly, not surprised that Texas actively discriminates against disabled vets.
