I think I better get my story straight before posting. I did go to the Senior Prom at Miami High with Miguel Pelayo--we were both seniors. We had a class together.

Oh, wow! I just read your story about remembering Miguel Pelayo and I remember him too. Yeah, I ran into him in high school in Miami and he invited to the prom (his senior prom while I was still a junior). I think I remember the name Rosendo Pena as well. Wish I could read/write more about that time long ago, but I have to go back to work. I will connect at a later time. Do you remember the Villa?

Armando - We found Jose "El Gallego'. He's living in the Tampa area and recently joined our Pedro Pan network. Go to my profile to get his info. Hope to see you in November for the Pedro Pan 50th reunion.

Hi Armando, this is Jose Fernandez Barbas “El Gallego”. I just found this web site and registered, what a great opportunity to allow us to relive some of our memories. I was reading Angel’s and Raul’s correspondence and noticed that you had asked both of them about me. I would love to talk to you, please write back and lets try to talk on the phone. If you bring me up you will find some pictures I have posted, I will try to find more pictures to post. Hope to hear from you soon.

Armando, Are you planning on going to the 50th Reunion? I'm trying to get all of the St Vincent's kids together again.

Message by Angel Braulio Canete | Aug 27th 2010

Hi Armando. I was also with Raul Ruiz in the first group of Cuban kids that arrived at St Vincent's. Let's stay in touch.

Hey Armando; You are right! El Vaquero was Rosendo Pena he and Jose Verde use to hang out together. We called him El Vaquero because he always wore a cowboy hat. Verde, may he rest in peace, was nicknamed El Bombero, for reasons I won't describe here. Did you ever spent time in the Summer Home on River Road? It was a great place!

Hello Armando I also spent a few years in Saginaw, from February 1962 to sometime in 1965. How long where you there? Do you remember Father Rginald or Sister Dorothy? I don't recall Miguel Pelayo.Where you part of the second or third group?
