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

1965 - At the age of 18 years old, Willie was alive when from August 11 to 16, riots broke out in Watts, a Black section of Los Angeles. An allegedly drunk African-American driver was stopped by LA police and, after a fight, police brutality was alleged - and the riots began. 34 people died in the rioting and over $40 million in property damage occurred. The National Guard was called in to help the LA police quell rioting.

1973 - In the year of Willie Wilson's passing, on January 28th, the Paris Peace Accord was signed - supposedly ending the Vietnam War.
