The Red Bull in World War II 34th Infantry Division Resources 1941-1945

 

The Brain Trusters Club of Co. "A", 133rd Regiment

An internal social organization of "A" Company whose membership recognized "greatness" in its members. "Siamo Posta", according to the official invitation for membership, meant "We Are Nuts". In actualtiy, "Siamo Pazzi" or "Siamo Noti" have been more on target as "Simo Posta" literally means "We Are Mail" or "We Mail Us". The origins of that catch phrase would be a story in itself.
