All,

It is now 0330 on 27 July 1990, and the twenty paratroopers of Lt Villagrosa's ODA-212 are descending to earth below silk canopies, having just departed a loaner C-130 as part of Operation Currahee, the Cuban operation to secure space for Cuban reinforcements to enter South Leon following the full-scale invasion launched by Fédération Socialiste Nationale de Leon (FSNL). Upon landing they will immediately form up and assault any and all enemy positions identified (in the event, it would turn out that intelligence information provided by South Leon government elements, via Task Group Fulgencio, would prove quite accurate). This is the second fight of the chaotic first minutes on the ground…

Romero (left) and Doc Eusabio (bottom right) both open fire on the sandbagged position, hitting the enemy rifleman there in the left thigh! The enemy soldier goes down, but he immediately sets about bandaging his leg and getting back into the fight. To see how the fight went, please check the blog at:

Next we catch up with SFC Medina leading an assault into the western end of town.
