An all spanish volunteer unit within the German Army. They fought on the Eastern front in WWII. After the war, we went to Cuba. Mostly becuase he got tired of the cold weather. And well, the rest is history. Castro took over. He feld to the US and joined Bridagada De Asalto 2506. Died on the beaches of Cuba and the rest of my family was put into prison. I was born. And then we came to the US.
That is a great history!! I also had family in Cuba, the grandparents of my father used to live in Habana, but they had to get out of there when Castro arrived, they lost all their propierties.
Your grandpa must have been a great person, I am sure that he had tons of great histories.
From what part of Spain is your family? I am from a place called Cantabria in northern Spain.
