Braço Forte, Mão Amiga
While in Florida last month I ran across a member of the Exército Brasileiro on vaca. Dating to 1822, the Brazilian Army is a very professional force with a rich heritage that includes fighting the Germans in Italy in WWII. I have a few Brazilian contract Mausers and an IMBEL-made FAL alongside a couple of commercial “Brasil”-marked handguns in the safe so myself and Romalo had lots to talk about.
Also, his shirt, from the mountain infantry, was the best.
