This chapter recounts the time when René Guénoun was sent to Morocco for three years to fulfill his military obligation in the Allied forces. His military service in Morocco was very different from his previous military service in Damascus. In Morocco, he worked in an office and received a money order for his reintegration and his wages for his daily needs. He signed up for training as a noncommissioned officer and persevered to be the first in his class. Thus, on November 10, he was promoted to become a noncommissioned officer, and his wages was raised. On Sundays, he made excursions to the city, watched some movies, and played boules.
