101st Airborne Unit – Adopted Troop

50th Anniversary Celebration!

Join us for a weekend of community-wide activities and special events to commemorate the 50th anniversary of San Mateo's adoption of the 101st Airborne Division of the U.S. Army. San Mateo adopted the 101st Airborne during the Vietnam War, and was one of the few communities in the nation to extend a thankful recognition to these soldiers when they returned to the states. Since then, San Mateo has continuously maintained a relationship with the adopted troop. During the festivities we will be joined by 50 troops and veterans from our original adopted unit.
