Sad to learn that a former NCOIC and fellow West Virginian, SSgt Marvin Zane Grey passed away a year ago. Marv was our NCOIC briefly, at AmEmb Tehran from Feb to April 1970.

GySgt Metz, was NCOIC then, Ambassador Robert S. Ingersoll, was there then as well till end 73 and promoted me to SSGT; DCM was Mr. Shoesmith; the RSO, was Mr Holden? I think; At that time, we had our main MSG post in the Chancery building, built in 1931, was where, the Ambassador and key staff worked in two out buildings within the fenced property, we also had BNDD, Bureau of Dangerous Drugs and Narcotics; and a two other agencies (no names used); the Chancery was next door to the Hotel Okura, where Sec Kissenger and Rodgers stayed when visiting; the Annex, held our MSG post 2, in the old railroad office building, an entire city block long, wide... and 6 stories high I think it was... it also housed the Defense Attache, Political Affairs, FBI, etc and the Military Assistance Group, as well as the Consulate downstairs... and other similar offices... The PAO, USAID was in a third building across town... the plans for the new US Embassy were drawn up in 1972... I think finished in 1976. Our Marine House was over below the Grew House (with 2 other similar apartment houses) and /US Compound, atop the hill, with the swimming pool a small commissary...green area, off Roppongi ave...I think it was. I will provide more of our MSG det members in a later email.
