Armand was drafted into the Luxembourg Army on 17 May 1950. Even before the official expiration of his military service, he volunteered for an additional period. Like many other volunteers for Korea, he was promised state employment on his return, but besides all professional and financial incentives, his natural traits of a born adventurer and a daredevil ultimately led him to serve in the Far East as a medic and sniper. Moreover, Armand was second in command of his squad.

Upon his return, he wanted to join the Luxembourg Gendarmerie, but he failed the exam. After being discharged from the Army in September 1953, Armand stayed on the track of helping people and became a paramedic, before taking a job as a nurse at the Ettelbruck hospital.
