For their actions, the squadron received the United States Presidential Unit Citation and numerous other awards and decorations. Most memorably, the U.S. commander of the 18th Fighter Bomber Wing, under which command the squadron served, issued a directive at the end of the war that:

"In memory of our gallant South African comrades, it is hereby established, as a new policy that at all Retreat Ceremonies held by this Wing, the playing of our National Anthem shall be preceded by playing the introductory bars of the South African National Anthem. All personnel of this Wing will render the same honours to this Anthem as our own."
