They were known as La Brigada 2506, an almost precise cross-section of Cuban society of the time. The Brigada included men from every social strata and race in Cuba — from sugar cane planters to sugar cane cutters, from aristocrats to their chauffeurs. But mostly, the folks in between, as befit a nation with a larger middle class than most of Europe.

Short on battle experience, yes, but they fairly burst with what Bonaparte and George Patton valued most in a soldier: morale. No navel-gazing about “why they hate us” or the merits of “regime change” for them. They’d seen Castroism point-blank.


Their goals were crystal-clear: firing-squads silenced, families reunited, tens of thousands freed from prisons, torture chambers and concentration camps. We see it on the History Channel after our GI’s took places like Manila and Munich.

57th Anniversary of the Bay of Pigs invasion: Honoring the courage and sacrifice of Brigada 2506 | Babalú Blog



Today, April 17th, marks the 57th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs invasion. Let us all take a moment today and honor the courage and sacrifice of the courageous men of the Brigada 2506, Cuban exiles from all walks of life who came together as a cohesive team.

Although they faced great odds and were victims of a devastating betrayal that ultimately sealed their fate, they fought valiantly until the very end to free Cuba from the Castro dictatorship and communist tyranny.

In spite of President Kennedy’s cruel betrayal when he canceled all air and supply support at the very last moment and abandoned them to die on that beach, these courageous warriors continued to fight until the very last bullet was fired.
