OTTAWA - An American special forces contingent has become the first non-Canadian recipient of the country's highest citation for military units.

The 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group has won the Governor General's Commander-in-Chief Commendation for its support of Canadian troops during a landmark battle in Afghanistan almost six years ago.

It's an honour that's only been given to Canadian battalions since its inception in the early 1990s.

The U.S. Army Green Berets fought to protect the flanks of a Canadian battle group as it pushed deep into the Taliban redoubt of Pashmul during Operation Medusa in 2006.
