Left to die, killed, captured, beaten, tortured, incarcerated. That’s what happened forty-eight years ago to the men of Brigade 2506 who took a stand against tyranny and fought for the liberation of their homeland. Today, the few that are left are still fighting. This time the enemy is indifference, indignation and shallow, undeserved criticism from those that declare them to be Cold War relics and hard line, anti-castro extremists.
I salute the men of la Brigada 2506 today, and assure them that it is indeed a privilege and an honor of the highest regard to stand along side them in that fight against tyranny.
