The Philippine Presidential Unit Citation is a decoration of the Republic of the Philippines which has been awarded to certain units of the United States military for actions both during and subsequent to the Second World War.

The decoration was first created in 1946 and retroactively awarded to any unit of the U.S. and Philippine military which had served in the defense or liberation of the Philippine Islands. The decoration was again bestowed to U.S. and Philippine military units for relief efforts during several natural disasters which occurred in the Philippines between 1970 and 1972.

In February 2005, President Gloria Arroyo bestowed the decoration to those members of Joint Task Force 510 & Joint Special Operations Task Force-Philippines, serving between 31 January 2002 and 31 July 2002 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom-Philippines (formerly known as Operation Freedom Eagle)and RP-US Exercise Balikatan 02-1 in Southern Mindanao.
