Title:
AFS Ambulances
Date:
1942-1943 Winter
Description:

We were assigned to various clinics and hospitals throughout the Middle East and came in to HQ [Headquarters] for a few days each month. While in Baalbek, we were billeted in the Gouroud Barracks, previously occupied by the French Foreign Legion. The barracks were very cold in winter with no heat, and barely sanitary.

Also billeted there were Senegalese troops. In the afternoons, they played soccer; the winning team got the privilege of guard duty that night. They loved to carry a gun and challenge us as we came to the gate.

Location: AFS HQ [American Field Service Headquarters], Baalbek, Lebanon, Winter.
