U.S. President Harry S. Truman came from a farm family in Missouri and served in combat in World War I. He was the third vice president to serve under FDR and became president when Roosevelt died in 1945. Truman first came to national prominence as head of the Truman Committee, exposing waste, fraud, and corruption in wartime contracts. He concluded World War II, making the decision to drop atomic bombs on Japan. After the war, he assisted in founding the United Nations and passed the Marshall Plan to rebuild Europe. Truman Doctrine was issued to contain Communism, and he oversaw the beginning of the Cold War with the Soviet Union. In 1950, he sent troops to Korea when communist North Korea invaded democratic South Korea.
