Hello Eloisa Thank you for the compliment you wrote on my Pedro Pan page. I don't think I really deserved it but gladly accept it anyway. Twice I read your story which is truly amazing. We all had to live through some harsh times after our exodus and I am hoping that some day our experiences will be compiled and published so that other generations become aware of what we (and our parents) had to endure in the pursue of freedom and liberties in this wonderful country. When I arrived on Oct. 13th, 1961 I was sent to Kendall Camp for a few days before going over to Camp Matecumbe because of my age. Had you stayed in Kendall a few more weeks we probably would have met. I do remember a sad night at Kendall when Mr. Porto savagely spanked this little boy for crying out for his parents. Like you, I was sent to an orphanage in Helena, MT and later to a foster home in a town called Whitefish in northern Montana. My experiences in both places were not very pleasant. It seems like you have accomplished so many good things in your life that you could very well become a role model for young, disadvantaged boys and girls who are now starting out in life. I would love to hear from you again.... you may contact me at: strfas@hotmail.com and right now I live in Winston-Salem, North Carolina Cariños..... Ozzie
