St. Matthew's proudly took part in Operation Eagle - 101st Airborne Unit Adopted Troop 50th Anniversary Celebration Parade which was held right here in downtown San Mateo. On March 4th, 1968 the San Mateo City Counsel had voted unanimously to adopt the 101st Airborne Division of the U.S. Army. These are highly trained 'jumpers' who have served all over the world but call the residents of San Mateo family. At the end of the Vietnam War, San Mateo was the only city in the entire United States to hold a homecoming parade and this was the perfect way to celebrate 50 years of support, family, and service! Some of our students, faculty and parents marched through downtown dressed in their Mustang gear and smiles to join the celebrations.
