As part of the Army Cohesion and Stabiliity Study (ARCOST) of 198.0, ~ proposal to adopt the Army Superior Unit Award was forwarded to Major Ar~y Commands (MACOM) for comment on 18March ~981. This recomme~datlon was based on the fact that present Army unit awards weil'e For combat service only. While all MACOM\ and most of the Army Staff supported the pr~posaJ, ithe Jeadersh~p elected not to app~ove th: new award. In 1984, the Vice Chief of Staff, Army, directed that a Peacetime Unit Award be developed and

submitted for approval. In April 1985, the Secretary of the Army (SECARMY) ap~rovedl~h~ Army Superior ~nit A~a:d for meritorious ~nit pe~formanc12 of a uniquely djfficult and challenging mission under extraordinary circumstances that involved tile national interest. As a result of the strict criteria and lack of approving awards, the criteria was charrqed by SECARMY In July 1986. This change deleted the words "u nique" arid "national interest". Only one award was approved] prior to the revision and it went to the 3d Battalion, S02d Infantry, 101st A.irbjorne Division. Nearly 200 of tile 248 soldiers that were killed in the plane crash in Gander, Newfoundland, were. from the battalion and were on their way hom~ ih December 1985 from duty with the Multinational Force and Observers ill the Sinai Desert.

b. On 17 September 1991, in a memorandum to the Secretary of the Army, The Adju~ant General (TAG) requested approval to create a lapel pin to be worn by all members of units awarded the Army Superior Unit Award. This recornmahdatlon was based on the fact that the award was being presented to units witli a siqnirtcant number of civilians assigned and there was no vistble means oflrecognizing them. This change permitted issue of an emblem to both military and civilian personnel. The Secretary of the Army approved the recommehdation on 12 December 1991.

c. The ~mblem is worn by all members of a cited organization and is considered an individual decoration For persons in connection with the Cited acts and may be worn whether or not they continue as members of the orqanization, Other personnel may wear this decoration whtle serving with an orqanizatlon to indicate the unit has been awarded the Army Superior Unit Award.
