Members of Oregon Army National Guard's 2nd Platoon, Bravo Co., 2nd Battalion, 162nd Infantry Regiment, of the 41 Infantry Brigade Combat Team, pose with battalion leadership after receiving the Presidential Unit Citation at the Corvallis Armory, Jan. 8. The award was bestowed on 30 Soldiers for their participation in the Battle of Fallujah, while the 2-162 IN BN was deployed to Iraq in 2004. As part of 2nd Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment, the Oregon Soldiers saw some of the fiercest fighting of the Iraq War. The Presidential Unit Citation is one of the highest awards given to a military unit. (U.S. Army photo by Spc. Cory Grogan, 41 Infantry Brigade Combat Team Public Affairs).
