The City has participated in a number of anniversary celebrations over the decades, both inviting veterans and members of the 101st Airborne to San Mateo as well as traveling to visit them at their Fort Campbell headquarters. We also frequently send care packages and host donation drives to benefit serving members.

Did You Know...? San Mateo adopted the 101st Airborne Company in 1968 during the Vietnam War as one of the few communities to extend a warm welcome to these soldiers when they returned to the States. Since then, San Mateo has continuously maintained a relationship with the Company.
