8/13/61 memo re AMCHEER-1 conversation with four Americans who wish to fight in Cuba: Jim BRUCE from Texas and a Korean War vet; "Pat STEPANICK, who fought in Cuba with Eloy Gutierrez Menoyo, William Morgan, and others for more than one year; Bill DEMPSEY, who claimed to be a veteran of the Korean War, and 'Little Joe' who did not give his true name...residing temporarily in 1936 SW 3rd St., Miami, and their economic situation is quite bad...(they were friends of Gerry Hemming)...AMCHEER-1 said he got the impression these men wanted to be recruited immediately because they have no money and no resources to keep waiting here. All they want is to be fed and sent to a training camp to fight with other Cubans."
8/25/61 dispatch portrays AMCHEER-1 explaining the role of INTERPEN and the personalities of Gerry Patrick Hemming referred to as "Patrick", Frank Fiorini, "Larry" (Laborde), "Little Joe" and others. "In addition to Fiorini, there is another person who seems to be higher in command than Fiorini. He was described as a tall, stout man who has great prestige in the Junta de Liberacion headed by AMEER-1/Aureliano Sanchez Arango." This sounds like a description of Hemming himself. "Little Joe" and Hemming wanted AMCHEER-1 to provide them with a fragmentation grenade and assist them in an action "to provoke an incident which would tend to force United States armed action against Cuba. AMCHEER-1 said all efforts to obtain the grenade were fruitless."
