Cruce de los Baños, September  11 (RHC)-- Fresh flowers before his tomb in the Mausoleum of the Third Eastern Front Mario Muñoz today symbolize that Commander of the Cuban Revolution Juan Almeida Bosque is remembered after 13 years of his death.

The offerings were placed on behalf of Army General Raúl Castro and the First Secretary of the Communist Party and President of the Republic, Miguel Díaz-Canel, and the people of Cuba and Esteban Lazo, President of the National Assembly of People's Power.

As it has become traditional, hundreds of residents of Cruce de los Baños, the head town of that demarcation, went on a pilgrimage to the monumental complex in Esperanza Hill.

The evocation of Almeida also took place at the Siboney recording studios in Santiago de Cuba, associated with the EGREM label, which were founded under Almeida's inspiration more than 40 years ago to cater to musicians in the eastern part of the island.

An author with over 300 compositions, Almeida's image is portrayed on the façade of the Heredia Theater, which remembers him as one of the three Commanders of the Revolution, along with Ramiro Valdés and Guillermo García.

The humble mason entered national memory as an assailant to the Moncada Barracks, along with Fidel Castro and young revolutionaries on July 26, 1953, and an expeditionary member of the Granma yacht that arrived on Cuban shores on December 2, 1956.
