  Operation Uphold Democracy was the name given to the restoration of the democracy in Haiti. The US, expecting civil unrest and military opposition, deployed a large force to the area, which could overcome any opposition and restore order to Haiti.
  The 16th Special Operations Wing deployed aircraft and personnel of the 9, 15, 16, and 20 SOS to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The 9 SOS with MC-130Ps provided refueling capabilities for the 20 SOS MH-53s. The 919 SOW contributed AC-130As of the 711 SOS and provided close air support capabilities along with AC-130Hs of the 16 SOS. The MC-130Hs of the 15 SOS were tasked to perform leaflet drops in support of psychological warfare operations and the 193 SOG employed EC-130E aircraft to broadcast radio and television messages to the citizens.

  The impending invasion eventually became a large-scale humanitarian mission, with U.S. forces landing on 19 September 1994.
