"THANK YOU AMERICA ! AND THE 82ND AIRBORNE" Top 5 Page for this destination Grenada Favorite Tip by DAO

Grenada General: 28 reviews and 44 photos

Favorite thing:
A local man kept telling me how appreciative Grenadans were of American troops liberating their beautiful island from the wretched Cuban army in 1983. The Communists had decided to make the island a ?Paradise? and started by murdering the leading politician and his family. President Regan sent in American forces to oust the Communists and restore order. Many of the troops were from my native North Carolina ? the 82nd Airborne. At least 19 soldiers died in Operation Urgent Fury and many more wounded. Today Grenada is a peaceful and democratic society. I salute the fallen.
