MSU Volleyball Records (Career) from the Montclair State University website As the ''Constitucionalistas'' successfully seized and held Santo Domingo over the initial days of the uprising, U.S. President Lyndon Johnson ordered an invasion by the U.S. military, dubbed as Operation Power Pack, with the pretext that the lives of American citizens there needed to be protected. A factor that was arguably more involved in the decision was the fear that the ''Constitucionalistas'' would bring about a communist regime in the country, and this risk of "another Cuba" was something that would not be allowed. Some twenty years passed before Caamaño was officially honored by the Dominican government as a hero for his attempts to restore rightful government to his country. Today, there is an avenue in Santo Domingo that bears the name ''Presidente Caamaño'' (the avenue borders the western bank of the Ozama River harbor, near its outlet to the Caribbean sea).
