cool pix Ricardo! I suspect most Americans have no idea that Brazilian forces served in Italy during WW2. Thanks for the reminder on the eve of Memorial Day here in the US.

Thanks for sharing. thumbsup.gif

to all who have served!

Very nice Ricardo.


I spoke with a 10th Mountain vet this past weekend and he talked about serving alongside the Brazilian troops. This was around the Riva Ridge (the BEF were to his right), as well as on Belvedere and Torraccia


He spoke very highly of their combat skills. And he laughed out loud as he began describing their driving skills. His memories of those guys were clearly very fond.
