October 1983: At the end of October 1983, personnel from the 19th Air Refueling Wing, 41st Tactical Airlift Squadron and 53rd Military Airlift Squadron deployed in support of Operation Urgent Fury, a U.S.-led invasion of Grenada that was triggered by a bloody military coup and ousted a four-year revolutionary government. During the invasion, the 19th ARW aircrews provided aerial refueling support, while the 41st TAS and 53rd MAS provided airlift support. At the conclusion of OUF, a constitutional government had been restored to the small Caribbean island. (Courtesy photo)
