The last relic of the Cold War Marine veteran offers path to U.S.-Cuban reconciliation

SAN DIEGO – The United States and Cuba severed ties almost fifty-five years ago, but experts say, even though Presidents Barack Obama and Raul Castro have made some progress, the U.S. trade embargo will not disappear in the near future.
Author Gerard Dion, long a proponent of U.S.-Cuba reconciliation, finds that detrimental to the success of both countries. His new political thriller, Cuba Unchained, addresses the unique relationship of the United States and Cuba and the US embargo, a relic of the Cold War.
“The very unique and illogical U.S.-Cuban relationship has mystified me for the last 25 years, as have other similar politically motivated relationships, which oppress large segments of innocent people,” Dion said. “My hope is for Cuba Unchained to aid in perpetuating the process of U.SCuban reconciliation, which has been in a stalemate.”
Like his main character in the novel, Dion is a US Marine veteran and a successful businessman. He considers it his duty to put forth his talents toward a situation about which he is passionate.
“One man or woman can change the world,” Dion said. “Those with the ability have the responsibility.”
