Abstract: We give a characterization of functions of the form $ f(n) = \nu (n - E)$, where $ \nu ( - )$ denotes the exponent of 2, and $ E$ is a $ 2$-adic integer. We show that it applies to the restriction to even or odd integers of the function $ f(n) = \nu (a{5^n} + b{3^n} + c)$, with mild restrictions on $ a,b$, and $ c$. This function is closely related to divisibility of certain Stirling numbers of the second kind.
