Greece, Turkey, and West Germany later joined. Today, there are 26 nations in NATO.

1970 - By the time he was 47 years old, on May 4th, four students at Kent State University in Ohio were shot and killed by National Guardsmen. The students were at a peaceful demonstration protesting the invasion of Cambodia by US forces. There had been precedent for the killing of American college students.
