Discussion:
Moreover, a cable from San Juan in August, 1963, stated that it was assumed AMBANG-1's (Manuel Ray Rivero) future relationship with the CIA would be discussed prior to his departure with Lamiaux. In addition, a dispatch in September of 1963 from Chief of Station (COS), San Juan, was signed by Melvin K. Lamiaux. Therefore, it is possible that Lamiaux was COS, San Juan, Costa Rica, in September, 1963. A dispatch in January of 1964 confirmed that Melvin K. Lamiaux was COS, San Juan.

Although they have not made great claims of successes in underground they have obviously been working hard and in spite of personal friction between Rafael and Francisco of MRR have been a coordinating influence rather than a disruptive influence. Their failure to toot their own horn is most un-Cuban and typical of their approach to problem. In spite of this underplaying they have been able attract men such as Sori Marin and have been WAVE's main channel to navy conspiracy. In Miami area they have stayed out of local politics and have been most cooperative with WAVE. Owner of Tejana is member their group and has successfully carried out several ops. In recent weeks they have provided approximately 160 recruits for Nino Diaz and brigade...3. UR Miami reps now wish mount intensive propaganda campaign aimed at people in Cuba to back up approaching military phase and are seeking WAVE support and offering full cooperation. WAVE recommends we be authorized grant them ten thousand dollars to support their efforts. 4. WAVE will urge local reps seek support of UR inside Cuba for Revolutionary Council. Miami reps per se not authorized to make such a commitment but could announce publicly that they are advising their people in Cuba to support council and WAVE believes their advise would be followed in Cuba. 5. Lamiaux approves and WAVE will procede unless HQs objects before 1800 hours 6 April..."
