Bay of Pigs
Victor Triay is the author of Bay of Pigs: An Oral History of Brigade 2506, published by the University Press of Florida.
Victor Triay discussed the Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961. He said that the failure of the Bay of Pigs invasion had been studied from multiple angles, but not from the viewpoint of the Brigade 2506 members. He talked about the recollections and interviews of the veterans and their families on the conflict. He was joined by Janet Ray, daughter of Captain Thomas Ray who was killed at the Bay of Pigs; Francisco Hernandez, a Brigade veteran; and Robert Allen, son of a Brigade veteran. They all answered questions from members of the audience.
