Press Release


September 15, 2006


Linda Patterson, President and Founder of America Supporting Americans (ASA), a Calif- based National non-profit organization will be attending the Beechwood/Covington Catholic Game (one of the biggest rivalries of the season) scheduled at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, September l5th. The Beechwood/Cov Catholic Game event will highlight the City’s “Support Our Troops” night. Also attending will be five paratroopers, members of the 504th Paratroop Infantry Regiment of the 82d Airborne Division based at Fort Bragg. NC. The City of Fort Mitchell, Kentucky adopted this unit for “morale support” through the ASA organization during the unit’s deployment in Afghanistan. Fort Mitchell’s adopted soldiers/ paratroopers will be representing the entire “adopted unit” Bravo Company 2-504. Dignitaries also attending “Support Our Troops” night will be State Senator Dick Roeding, State Senator Jack Westwood, Mayor Tom Holecher, and ASA’s No. Ky. Regional Rep. John Stein.


America Supporting Americans, (ASA, links military units with cities through an “Adopt-a-Unit” program enlisting community support. The organization’s goal is to provide military members with a lasting bond with their adopted city/community, and to strengthen the civilian-military relationship by increasing civilian understanding of the military experience while at the same time providing servicemen and women the opportunity to become directly involved with residents of a community which is committed to their support.


The State of Kentucky has a strong presence of ASA Adopted military units, and is encouraging more of their citizen communities to join the ASA national troop support program. “Our troops are at war and need to know Americans at home support them by deeds of action.” Stated Linda Patterson. “We understand the need of our program for the welfare and compassion of our military troops; we have supported troops through three wars beginning in Vietnam”.


Last June, Patterson had the honor to visit with President Bush at the White House. The Commander In Chief emphasized the importance of organizations such as ASA and the relevance it has had on our country and its citizens. He reiterated his call for Americans to find ways to continue their efforts to support American servicemen and women, as well as their families, during this Global War on Terrorism.
