Its importance exists only in American Military Histiry as the first use of US military forces overseas, the first US overseas victory, the first use of an envelopment against a foreign power outside of the Continental US, the first use of Ranger forces against overseas forces, the first use of mercenary forces against an enemy of the US and the first Special Forces operation by US forces.

Asked in Vietnam War
How did the fear of another Vietnam affect another foreign policy?
After Vietnam, for the US military & the Commander in Chief it was keep a low profile and don't provoke something that would require the deployment of US military forces. And if & when it became necessary to deploy military forces...do it quickly, cleanly, and don't tell anybody (censor the news) unless or until it is a successful campaign. That time came when President Reagan commenced "Operation Urgent Fury" in Grenada in 1983. The first use of offensive US military force since Vietnam and it was a success; but the news people complained about not knowing about it before hand...which is possibly why it was so successful. For some semi-factual entertainment on the campaign in Grenada see film: "Heartbreak Ridge" starring Clint Eastwood. This movie is about Operation Urgent Fury.
