Default US POW 1958 Cuba

Now this was before my time. But there was a group of US military that were taken prisoner by the rebels in Cuba on Jun 27, 1958 and they were held captive for 19 days.

Interesting bit of history... I had the training wheels off my bike by then, but never have been aware of this fact until now..

Actually.... I did some Googles of this and could not find out any specific mention of US military prisoners there then...

Lots of info on Cuba/Castro/etc history from about 1953 through 1961..

Do you have links ??

My ship was in Guantanamo in 1958, can't remember the exact date.
Liberty was restricted to the base because of rebel fighting nearby.

What started my search was a picture that was posted on Facebook to a Seabee site. A wife husband posted a photo of an hometown newspaper article. She was going through old photo albums with her husband who is on hospice care. This was about all I could find aside from his hometown newspaper picture.
