11 Nov 2006 - my first attempt at a clean-up of the page. I will return to complete. --Edward Buxton 23:25, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
Removed reference to Camp David a/k/a Naval Support Facility Thurmont as "Shangri La", a name used for a decade or so and more than fifty years ago. Moreover, the link points to the movie.

WHCA unit awards
The last sentence under Role says that WHCA received a Presidential Unit Citation (PUC), but the PUC is only awarded to combat units and WHCA has never been a combat unit. DA Pamphlet 672-3, Unit Citation and Campaign Participation Credit Register, 29 January 1988, page 102 (page 106 of the PDF) does not list a PUC for WHCA. It does list two Meritorious Unit Commendations (MUC) and a Joint Meritorious Unit Award (JMUA). The second MUC is the one that covers the dates of Nixon's visit to China (February 21-28, 1972). However, the text of that MUC citation does not specifically mention the China trip, and in fact covers everything that happened during the period of 1971 to 1973.
Recommendation: Under Role, delete the entire last sentence starting "Richard Nixon awarded the agency..." and replace it with "The Agency has received two Meritorious Unit Commendations and a Joint Meritorious Unit Award."
