One U.S. government agency has sent more than $2 million to Cuba since 2011. Dissidents didn't get the money and neither did the Castro brothers.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs delivered the money to soldiers stationed at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, federal records show. Here's the breakdown:

  • Veterans compensation for service-related disability: $1,409,514
  • Post-9/11 veterans educational assistance: $538,895
  • All-volunteer force educational assistance: $218,950
  • Veterans dependency and indemnity compensation for service-connected death: $29,525
  • Vocational rehabilitation for disabled veterans: $10,918
  • Other: $17,876

Total: $2,225,678
