Various unit awards. If you were a member of that unit when it earned the award, you ware it from that time forward, no matter what unit you are now in. If you were not in the unit at the time it was awarded, you STILL where the unit's citations while YOU serve in the unit. When reassigned, you remove the unit citations.
