We all remember the attempts on Presidents Ford and Reagan, but few remember
the attempt on President Truman.
Greselio Torresola and Oscar Collazo were members of the militant Puerto
Rican Nationalist Party and in 1950 attempted to shoot President Truman.
Torresola killed an officer and was killed by the same officer during the
incident. Collazo was shot in the chest but survived. President Truman
commuted Collazo's death sentence to life imprisonment. In 1979, President
Jimmy Carter had him released after serving 29 years, and he returned to
Puerto Rico where he passed away at the age of 80 in 1994.
