The Army allegations were found to be true. The U.S. Senate later censured McCarthy.

1980 - In the year of Mariana Sorondo's passing, on April 24th, a rescue attempt was begun in the Iranian Hostage Crisis. The attempt failed and 8 US servicemen were killed.

Upon leaving, a helicopter collided with a transport plane and the men were killed.
