The Bay of Pigs Monument is a tribute to the soldiers who lost their lives in the Bay of Pigs Invasion that took place in Little Havana, Miami, Florida. The monument features the names of the fallen soldiers engraved on it, and an eternal flame burns on the top as a symbol of their courage. The monument was dedicated on April 17, 1971, by several hundred Cuban exiles, Miami Mayor David T. Kennedy, and then-Senator Lawton Chiles. President Richard Nixon sent his best wishes for the occasion via cable.
