"Dawn was just breaking over the beaches of Grenada when US Troops, along with a small force of Caribbean Soldiers, landed on the tiny island nation. Operation Urgent Fury had begun. US Marines and Rangers landed simultaneously on both the northern and southern portions of the island. Militarily the invasion was a success, but serious questions remain: How long would the US Military stay on Grenada? And, how long would it take before free Democratic elections were once again held on the tiny island?" -Voice Over from the news clip
