Umbriago

Getting into proper fighting spirit for the jump, U.S. Paratroopers of the 507th Regiment shave their heads to leave only an Indian-style scalp lock; There were other comradely rituals: All the paratroopers on Capa's plane leaped out of the open door yelling not the traditional "Geronimo" but "Umbriago"- a corruption of the Italian word for "drunk."
