Field Marshal Garcia was appointed President of the U.S.M. following the Mercator coup of January 18, 1950. Garcia served as a figurehead while actual power was exercised by Secretary of War Vincent Mercator. When the Mexican economy suffered a recession in 1954 as a result of market manipulations by Kramer Associates, Garcia resigned, to be replaced as President by Mercator.
