Bay of Pigs Anniversary

Ya No Mas and Babalu have extensive information concerning the 45th anniversary. Just remember one of those broken promises made by JFK in the Orange Bowl on December 29th, 1962:

"I promise to return this flag in a free Havana."

Please support the Bay of Pigs Museum and Library:

"The mission of this independent, non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization is to establish a new, modern Museum in Miami's Little Havana area honoring the heroes of the Brigade 2506 and preserving the true history surrounding the Bay of Pigs invasion of April 17, 1961. This new museum will replace the existing museum at 1821 SW 9th St, SW, Miami, Florida.The Museum also is bringing together another younger generation of persons interested in Miami and Cold War History, and the ongoing struggle for liberty in Cuba.

I well remember watching that charade, live, as it took place at the Orange Bowl...why would anyone ever think the same President who had abandoned the Brigade to its fate was going to do ANYTHING to "return this flag in a free Havana?" How empty those words must have seemed to those heroes listening all too politely to them...
