Oregon Army National Guard unit to receive Presidential Unit Citation
Corvallis, Ore. – Corvallis-based Bravo Company, 2nd Battalion, 162nd Infantry Regiment, of the 41 Infantry Brigade Combat Team, is scheduled to receive the Presidential Unit Citation at the Corvallis Armory, Jan. 8 at 2 p.m.

The Presidential Unit Citation, which is the highest decoration any U.S. military unit can receive, is awarded to units of the armed forces for extraordinary heroism in action against an armed enemy occurring on or after Dec. 7, 1941.

From Nov. 3, 2004, to Nov. 24, 2004, the unit experienced some of the heaviest fighting of the Iraq war in the city of Fallujah. The unit was initially selected for an attack on the city, but soon came under heavy enemy resistance, which lasted a period of days.
