I was an 11th grader at Catholic School in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico -- and, of course, many vessels used for the invasion came out of Roosevelt Roads in Ceiba, P.R. My Dad was a LTCDR in the USCG Reserve in Old San Juan, so he was on duty for a whole week on base upon initial talk about President Reagain (May he Rest in Peace) ordering the invasion.
We'll never forget Dame Eugenia Charles, Prime Minister of Dominica, who first advised the US about certain activities in Grenada from the Cubans and the Soviets. She was the Maggie Thatcher of the Caribbean.
I enjoy watching Heartbreak Ridge, with Clint Eastwood, about the invasion. It was filmed in Vieques, Puerto Rico.
And finally, we pray for those who did not make it. May they all Rest In Peace.
