Grenada

Hidden in the south Caribbean Ocean lies the tiny island country of Grenada. Most Americans never heard of Grenada until the invasion in the early nineteen eighties when President Reagan sent in troops to dispel the rebels who had taken over the country.

The residents of the tiny island are still grateful to the United States for the assistance they gave in helping the Grenadians regain their freedom.
