Download Page for 3d Armored Division Unit Award Orders

This page contains downloads for two Adobe Acrobat files that will give you the basic documents you need to have your Officer Record Brief (ORB) or DA Form 2-1 updated: the initial memorandum authorizing the award and excerpts from the Department of the Army General Order (DAGO) announcing the award.
