Paul was forcibly conscripted into the German Wehrmacht in 1942. He was taken prisoner by Soviet troops and incarcerated in the Tambov POW camp.

Paul volunteered for the first contingent in 1950, leaving Europe in December 1950 to head out towards Pusan, Korea.

Overseas, Paul suffered a triple fracture of his right wrist, which left his hand permanently stiff, making it impossible for him to hold a rifle. He therefore was medically discharged and returned back to Europe in late June/early July 1951. Being one of the first veterans to return, the Luxemburger Wort held an interview, so he could share his personal impressions from Korea with the nation.

Leaving the Army shortly after his return, Paul was transferred to the C.F.L. He is buried in Strassen.
