Former Ranger tells role in 1983 campaign
Photo: Full news
Contributed photo / Michael Peterson
PARACHUTE?DROP — The last man out of this C-130 may well have been then-Sergeant First Class Michael Peterson of Grangeville, who was the last man off of one of the lead planes during the invasion of Grenada three decades ago. “There’s a one-in-eight chance that’s me in the photo,” he said in an interview last Thursday, Oct. 30, which was the 30th anniversary of his return to the U.S. homeland. Parts of two battalions of the U.S. Army’s 75th Rangers, including Peterson’s platoon, parachuted onto the island on Oct. 25, 1983.
