America Invades Grenada

On this date in 1983, President Ronald Reagan ordered U. S. Marines and Army Rangers to invade Grenada.

Citing a takeover of the Caribbean Island by "a brutal group of leftist thugs," U. S. troops and a small force from six Caribbean nations overcame surprisingly strong resistance from Cubans, who supported the island's new regime.

The troops began evacuating 1,100 U.S. citizens from the island a day after the invasion.
