This emblem was awarded to members of the Armed Forces of the United States for services culminating in the liberation of the Philippine Islands during the Second World War. The conditions were the same as would be required for award of the Presidential Unit Citation of the United States. The award is made in the name of the President of the Republic of the Philippines. The ribbon is slightly larger for the Army and worn on the right breast, for the other services the ribbon is the standard size.

Ribbon has three wide stripes of equal width. Starting from the left, a wide stripe of blue, a wide stripe of white and a wide stripe of red. The ribbon is enclosed in a rectangular 1/16 inch gold frame with laurel leaves.
