Here's a pic of the 10th Mtn. Div. platoon that went to Rio in July 1945.

This is from the Brazilian Army site. I think it's the only digital 10th Mtn. pic they have.
There are probably many more in newspaper archives since their arrival was extensively covered.

From what I read these guys had a very nice time in Rio...

Wish they'd send us 10th mountains guys to Rio now-a-days instead of Trashcanistan or B[0w-man-istan or whatever ppl call it now.

Awesome image!
