On 19 December 1943, Headquarters authorized the activation of the company as an all-black all-volunteer unit with black officers as well as black enlisted men. The 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion was nicknamed the "Triple Nickles" because of its numerical designation and the selection of 17 of the original 20-member "colored test platoon" from the 92nd Infantry (Buffalo) Division. Hence, the origin of the term Buffalo Nickles; the spelling derives from old English. We are proud of our heritage and are excited to present a remastered design in their honor.
