Harry Carmean in the army WW2
At the age of 20 Harry Carmean joined the army and served in WW2, effectively ending a successful singing career. He was stationed in France and Germany for four years until the war's end. He then stayed on in France though the summer and studied art at the L'Ecole de Beaux Arts before returning to the United States. After he returned, while he tried to start up his singing again, he found himself drifting towards art. When he encountered the charismatic painting teacher Lorser Feitelson at Art Center he made the decision once and for all to become an artist.
