At the end of WWII, he returned to UCLA for his senior year-where he met the love of his life, Suzanne Dohan. He graduated summa cum laude in 1947 and he and Suzy were married in August 1948. Aspaturian received his PhD in Political Science in 1951, and was immediately recalled to active duty with the Army to serve in military intelligence in Tokyo during the Korean War.
