    Operation Urgent Fury 1983 Grenada Delta Force Ranger reenactment

    Post by pwmiraldi67 on Fri Apr 09, 2010 12:44 am

    a while back we did a TV show for the History channel on the invasion of Grenada, here we are doing the Delta Force segment. Delta wore a combination of nam era ERDL, post war ERDLs with straight pockets, and the RDF pattern as seen here. photos also show them wearing the Rosco brand Tigerstripe 4 pocket BDU cut ripstop, headgear was the M1951 style ranger caps, ERDL boonies, RDF boonies or no headgear, LBE standard ALICE with multiple M-16A1 pouches, strobe light, and such. footwear standard Nam era style jungle boots with both Vibram and Panama soles, Smile
    enjoy

    Paul,
    I have a set of USMC ERDL's that have been modified with the pockets on the sleeve. Since it has the EGA on the pocket, I am certain it was post-Vietnam. Did the Marine Recon or Force Recon wear these modified uniforms during Urgent Fury? Thanks!!!!

    hey Arch
    its hard to say, yes the EGA makes it POST Nam, since the marines were forbidden to put the EGA on the Army 4 color camo uniform. as for the pockets, who's to say, could be something worn during the 80s Smile
