DA Pam 672-3 dated 29 Jan 1988, pg 12-13 depict the Presidential Unit Citations awarded to the 1st Bn (ABN) 8th Cav 1965-66 (Jumping Mustangs). The Presidential Unit Citation is the highest unit citation for extraordinary heroism. The Jumping Mustang battalion is the only combat unit to receive THREE Presidential Unit Citations in a single combat tour of duty...in any war, conflict or combat engagement. The Chinese Bandits were the name given to the Recon Platoon of the 1st Bn (ABN) 8th Cav...initially Recon's call sign but later the name given to the Legendary Chinese Bandits.
