In 1942, Faucet, now forty two, joined the army, made it through rigorous basic training, and won admission to the Office Candidate School in Grinnell, Iowa, before the Adjutant General's office in Washington expelled him for his "radical utterances" and fear that "he would be harmful to the morale of the Army." Fauset returned to Philadelphia, where he continued his career as a school principal and scholar.
