Navy clearance diving team 3 receives US commendation

Members of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Clearance Diving Team 3 today received the United States (US) Unit Commendation for service in the 1991 Gulf War.
In 1992, the Acting Secretary of the US Navy awarded a US Unit Commendation to units involved in the 1991 multinational Desert Storm Task Group.
Australian guidelines at the time prevented Clearance Diving Team 3 personnel from accepting the US award. Following later revision of the guidelines, the US has been progressively reviewing records to ensure all entitled personnel receive their awards.
