195. 2/15/1961

“MID-FEBRUARY 1961: Tony Verona, Antonio Maceo, and another member of the Frente [the Front] arrive in the training camp in Guatemala. Varona, the coordinator and principal official of the Frente speaks to the Brigade and says that the Brigade headquarters cannot make decisions without first consulting the civilian structure in Miami. The following day, Verona expresses confidence in San Roman’s leadership, which Brigade members greet with catcalls and shouts of derision.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
