Former Teamsters union boss Jimmy Hoffa disappeared at, or sometime after,
2:45 pm on July 30, 1975, from the parking lot of the Machus Red Fox Restaurant
in Bloomfield Township, a suburb of Detroit. He reportedly was to meet there with
two Mafia leaders. Hoffa’s wife contacted police to report him missing when he
failed to return home that evening. When police arrived at the restaurant, they
discovered Hoffa’s car, but there was no sign of Hoffa himself.

An extensive investigation into his disappearance by several law enforcement
agency’s, including the FBI, began immediately, and continued over the next
several years. The investigations failed to learn anything of Hoffa’s fate and
he was declared legally dead in 1982, the seventh anniversary of his
disappearance.

"In God We Trust" was adopted as the official motto of the United States On
July 11, 1954, just one month after the phrase "under God" was incorporated
into the Pledge of Allegiance. The U.S. Congress enacted Public Law 84-140,
which required the motto on all coins and currency. The law was approved by
President Eisenhower on July 30, 1956, and the motto was progressively added
to paper money over a period from 1957 to 1966.
