This website will only show awards that pertain to Bandido Charlie Company on this web page.  Other previous awards that were issued in WWI and WWII in the 9th Infantry Division will not be considered as appropriate for this web site because the company involved was neither Mechanized nor was called "Bandidos" at the time the awards were given. Same goes for the time frame after Vietnam when the Bandido name ceased to exist.  Forthcoming awards for Bandido Charlie Company will be shown as they are issued after January 2005.  This is because the current Charlie Company reverted back to the "Bandido" name at that time. For all other awards, please refer to the 5th/60th (9th Div.) and 1st/16th (1st Div.) web sites.
