On the same day that Herbert L. Matthews interviewed Fidel Castro, the day being February 17, 1957, three young Americans escaped at the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, where a 26th of July Movement operated and sometimes stole firearms. Charles E. Ryan, Victor J. Buehlman, and Michael L. Garvey, sons of U.S. enlisted personnel, disappeared without a trace. Their parents feared that they had joined forces with rebel soldiers in the Sierra Maestra. The three Americans had in fact teamed up with a Santiago contingent of fifty recruits. Servicio de Intelligencia Militar stated that the three Americans had been seen at a bar in Havana.
