How long does a unit hold onto awards

Depends based on the required signatures. I have received ARCOMs and an MSM after I PCSed because of required signatures, to receive my award months later; or even due to officers who had assumption of command orders because the true CO was on TDY or whatnot and they still wanted to wait until that individual returns. But then I had an O-5 finally signed my award then waiting on the General to return.

With an ARCOM, BN has to send it up to BDE and you just have to keep following up for statuses.
