Friday, 06 May 2011 05:20 PM

FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) — President Barack Obama has met with the assault forces who carried out the strike on Osama bin Laden and has awarded them a presidential citation.

The White House says the president, along with Vice President Joe Biden, met privately with the troops at Fort Campbell, Ky., to thank them for their service.

Obama met with the full assault force involved in the raid in Pakistan carried out by Navy SEALS and also with helicopter operators who got them there. He awarded the units involved a Presidential Unit Citation — the highest such honor that can go to a military unit — to recognize "extraordinary service and achievement."
