Noteworthy is the books emphasis on the role of3/5. Grenada How the U.S. Military Got its Mojo Back. Keith Nightingale. Thirty-four years ago, this week (October 25th) the U.S. invaded the Caribbean island of Grenada, rescued some medical students, and rounded-up a gang of thugs and criminals, along with their Cuban communist backers.

      26 October President Reagan gave the order to invade after Grenada’s Prime Minister was killed in a military coup Colin Brown Wed 26 . The invasion of Grenada in late can be seen as a small part of the rivalry between the U.S. and Cuba during the Reagan years. A bloody coup in Grenada, along with a perceived threat to American students on the island provided the U.S. with an excellent excuse to eliminate a Marxist regime allied to Fidel Castro's Cuba.

      The following year, over two hundred of those marines were killed when a bomb was exploded in their barracks by terrorists. Shortly after that, in October (with some analysts concluding this was clone to take attention away from the Lebanon disaster), Reagan sent US forces to invade the tiny Caribbean island of Grenada. The United States’ invasion of Grenada commenced in earnest on 25 October , on the orders of President Ronald Reagan. The invading force was made up of the 1 st and 2 nd Ranger Battalions and the 82 nd Airborne Division, along with other Marines, Delta Force, and Navy SEALs, altogether numbering 7, troops drawn from both the U.S. and Jamaica.
