Many of the references below are duplications for the same citation (i.e. a PUC awarded to both River Assault Divisions 111 and 112 may also appear as a PUC awarded to River Assault Squadron 11 for the same dates). We presently have most of the awards compiled with the help of our Mobile Riverine Force personnel and the Chief of Naval Operations office. If you know your unit came under the umbrella of River Assault Flotilla ONE and/or Task Force 117 then please let us know and we will include your citations.

The following information is excerpted from the Chief of Naval Operations OPNAV Note 1650 of 09 Mar 01 – Unit Awards and Citations Master List – Awards Branch: N09B13. See our Navy Awards and Decorations page to learn how to search for your personal unit awards.
