The Philippine Presidential Unit Citationis a unit decoration of the Republic of the Philippines. It has been awarded to certain units of the United States military and the Philippine Commonwealth military for actions both during and subsequent to the Second World War.
The badge was first created in 1946 and retroactively awarded to any unit of the Philippine or U.S. military which had served in the defense or liberation of the Philippine Islands during World War II. It was bestowed again to Philippine and U.S. military units for relief efforts during several natural disasters which occurred in the Philippines during 1 August to 15 December 1970 (a series of typhoons) and 21 July to 15 August 1972 (monsoon rains and associated floods).
In February 2005, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo bestowed the unit award to those members of Joint Task Force 510 & Joint Special Operations Task Force-Philippines, serving between 31 January 2002 and 31 July 2002 in support of RP-US Exercise Balikatan 02-1 in Southern Mindanao. JTF-510/JSOTF-Philippines aimed at reducing the threats of terrorism and provided assistance with training, socio-economic activities and civil engineering projects, particularly in Basilan and Zamboanga City (Ref: RP General Order No. 146, dated 2 Feb 05, Subj: Award of the Philippine Republic Presidential Unit Citation Badge).
