It’s April 17 and time to remember what happened this week in 1961.
Many brave Cubans died at the Bay of Pigs. Castro put thousands in prison because they supported the invasion. Many were executed or spent years in some of the world’s worst political prisons.
I choose to recall the events of this week by remembering the heroes of Brigade 2506.
Time is taking it’s toll on this great generation.
They were Cubans determined to fight for their country. This is how I remember these men, and the families who supported them.
