Operation Just Cause

Can't believe it has been 28 years since OJC. I will be raising a glass tonight at dinner. RLTW!

RIP, gentlemen. OJC was the first US Military Operation I remember. I remember seeing pictures of US troops on the cover of my Weekly Reader in 5th Grade.

I think I still have some 550 cord from Rio Hato.

We (7th ID) airlanded there some time after the 75th jump, to
secure the airhead. The next morning I took a walk along
the jungle side of the airstrip and came across chutes.
Couldn't resist stuffing my cargo pockets with shroud lines
--figured if I didn't, the locals would, anyway

At one end of the strip there was a bus, back end stuffed
with AKs stacked from floor up to the window line, and
crates of loaded mags. Our S2 figured it was a mobile
arms room for the dignity battalions. Near the bus were
several big (20' radius, 2-3' high) of scrapped/unserviceable
small arms--Taiwan AR copies with broken buttstocks,
assortments of other stuff, even a Thompson or two.

There was a warehouse next to all of it, with crated
munitions and weapons. Stacks of stuff..saw an open
case of grenades. Everyone was tempted, ha!
