Stayed there painting and typing for three months.  Went to Tehran in November 1963.  Was in Baluchistan (SE Iran) in November when we heard about JFK.  I believe it was Level III.  We were South of Ziadan.  A pretty remote and unsafe part of Iran.  Some of the names that I remember after that are Bam, Qom, Esfahan, and Mashhad--for two years, we were all over.  Later in my tour, there was an earthquake in Northwest Iran.  I went up there to run some gravity readings for a period before returning to Level III to finish out my tour.  I left in November 1965 and was separated after returning to the USA. I loved my time in Iran and the people there,  it's unfortunate how things have changed."
