Presidential Unit Citation
For outstanding performance and distinguished service during her War Patrols in enemy-controlled waters. Resolute and daring in combat, the USS Harder has operated dangerously. Striking wherever the neemy could be found, she sank or damaged many thousands of tons of hostile shipping. The officers and men of the Harder have achieved a brilliant record of gallantry in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.
