      Republic of Vietnam Civil Action 1C Palm Unit Citation – Army

      
       $ 2.79
      A decoration of South Vietnam established in 1964. The “unit” citation – as opposed to the individual award given to qualifying individual soldiers – was presented to all members of a military command who had participated in civic actions with such a degree that would normally warrant the presentation of the Vietnam Civil Actions Medal. The “unit” award variety was also referred to as the “Civil Actions Unit Award with Palm” or as the “Vietnam Meritorious Unit Citation with Civil Actions Colors.” The unit award appears identical to the ribbon for the Vietnam Civil Actions Medal (1C or 2C variety), enclosed in a gold frame with a centered bronze palm. Regulations did permit the simultaneous presentation and display of both the full sized medal and unit award, since the two awards were considered separate decorations. The 1st Class version (1C) is awarded to officers and the 2nd Class version (2C) to NCOs and enlisted. In the United States armed forces, the Vietnam Civil Actions Unit Citation was most often awarded to units of the United States Marine Corps which had participated in local police actions to suppress civil unrest in certain areas of South Vietnam. The Vietnam Civil Actions Medal was one of the more commonly bestowed Vietnam medals presented to the forces of foreign militaries.
