1983: U.S. Invasion of Grenada

On Oct. 25, 1983, U.S. Marines stormed Grenada to secure the safety of American nationals from the threat of the country's Marxist government. The invasion, dubbed Operation Fury, overthrew the regime in just over a week, ousting Marxist leader Bernard Coard. In this photo by Miguel Vinas, protesters hold a rally in Havana's Revolution Square to pay tribute to the Cubans killed during the invasion.
