Assignment Iran - 1963

Assignment Iran
This U.S. Army film from its long-running “Big Picture” series followed a U.S. Army adviser through his Fort Bragg, North Carolina special forces training, Persian language school in California, and two-year assignment in Iran helping to create a special forces group there. The Cold War goal was to combat communist guerrillas fighting in Iran.
