    A few people have asked me latly about Just Cause and uniforms,
    Here is a few pics leading just 2 days up to the invasion and a couple during the Coup.
    These photos have never been publisjed and I have a few more I may post.

    1st. This is my Platoon leader and Squad Sgt.
    Note the Ranger tabs over the 6th ID patch.This was during the inital alert before we knew it was "the Night".

    2nd is Hours before the Invasion when we was preping not knowing it was "Go Night"
    I am the Joker on the left.
    Later that night this vehicle took several hits knocking us around pretty good when we rolled thru a small ambush on the way to the Commandancia area.

    For you Navy lovers here is us preping for a alternate route in case bridges were down.
    I think these were took at Rodman Naval Base but it has been awhile.

    He was probally with a friend of mine from school.
    We were right beside the Rangers at the Commandancia.
    What history doesn't teach is before anyone even hit the ground 4/6th ID was allready in the Commandancia and taking it hard.I still have slight ear damage from that night.
    Also one Ranger group totally f@#$^!! up a group of M.P.s thinking they was a V300 unit.
    We was so many places down there it was hard to keep track.
    If anyone is interested i have some paper work for a few things we did down there not on the books.
    HAHA I knew a dude,got hit on the jump,,1 jump got combat jump wings,C.I.B.,Combat patch and purple heart,,,sheeshhhhhh....

    Einer got hit if I remember correctly , but it was nothing serious , he continued to lay down fire , he is working on a page for my Vets site , when he completes it I will post on the board , might bring back more memories !

    BTW he ended his career with a back injury while training others in Jump school , he was the armys only HALO jump master/Instructor at the time ,and they were very reluctant to let him go .

    I should be getting some stuff in soon that was brought back by an 82abn trooper that dropped into Grenada, he "liberated" it from an APC. Pretty cool info man, I know that I would be interested in getting a look at that paperwork if it isnt too much of a hassle.
