03/18/63: Memo for the record from Withheld, PM Case Officer: Subject: Transfer of Irving C. Devuono to the AMLILAC Group: "1. On 15 March 1963 a meeting was held at (REDACTION) in order to advise both (REDACTION) and Irving C. Devuono as to the latter's transfer from the AMTABBY group to the AMLILAC group. In attendance at this meeting were Stanley R. Zamka (David Morales), (REDACTION) Devuono and the writer. 2. Zamka initiated the discussion by stating that the 15th would be Devuono's last day with CUSOG and that he should take care of any accounts outstanding and complete processing out of CUSOG. Devuono was advised he would be contacted by (REDACTION) later in the day in reference to his next assignment. 3. (REDACTION) was then advised he should plan a caching operation during the month of April. The exact location, weight and contents of the cache would be passed to him the afternoon of the 15th. (REDACTION) reported that a boat, the Squall King, with which a great deal of training had been accomplished be permitted to go on this caching operation. Zamka agreed that security wise the use of an organic AMTABBY boat might be worthwhile. (REDACTION) will include the use of the Squall King in the operational plan which he will submit this coming week. 4. This meeting broke up at 1130 hours, 15 March 1963." - - - 2022 release, page 272: https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/2022/104-10224-10000.pdf

10/07/63: Memo from Stanley R. Zamka (David Morales), Chief, PM to Chief, Cover: Subject: Alien Documentation for Irving C. Devuono (P): "1. Irving C. Devuono has used the alias George Lee in the local area. The circumstances which required the use of this alias is as follows: Devuono, accompanied by the real estate officer from the Cover Branch, under the alias Gregory Williams, went to Islamorada in April 1963 to determine the suitability of S/H 177 for the AMLILAC ("Commando Groups" - Comandos Mambises and others - involved in infiltrations into Cuba) Group. It was not anticipated at that time that Devuono would be required to use his name with the owner, Eddie Sweeting. However, arrangements for the S/H were made on the spot and the name George Lee given as the occupant of the house. 2. If possible it is requested that alias documentation be established in the name of George Lee. This is not an absolute requirement, however, and a registered alias could be arranged." - - - 2022 release, page 264: https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/2022/104-10224-10000.pdf
