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

1959 - At the age of only 8 years old, Mary was alive when on August 8th, Hawaii became the 50th state of the United States. The US flag was changed to show 50 stars.

1973 - In the year of Mary Hicks's passing, in October, Vice President Spiro Agnew resigned - President Nixon nominated Gerald Ford for Vice President. Nixon's tax returns came under investigation.

Nixon releases some of the tapes, under extreme pressure because of the firings.
