The Millbrae City Council formally adopted a military unit through the America Supporting Americans (A.S.A.) non-profit organization. The 101st Airborne Division, Bravo 2-32 FAR (Field Artillery Regiment), also known as Boldsteel Battery out of Fort Campbell, Kentucky, is assigned as the City's adopted military unit. The unit has approximately 130 men and women.
Four nearby communities, the Cities of San Mateo, Hillsborough, Burlingame, and Foster City, have all formally adopted military units. Each city has organized care packages that include food, drinks, and other items. During the holidays, volunteers get festive and add seasonal items such as candy canes and wrapped presents.
