2IDA would like to welcome to this site:
I first “met” Ken Leighty in 2001 via the internet. He was building this great site and I recognized the dog in several of the photos as Sergeant-Major George because the dog was a part of my infantry unit some years later. It was just enough of a shared experience for Ken and I to keep in touch.
And then the site disappeared for some time.
During a 2009 reunion of DMZ Vets in Valley Forge, PA, I finally met Ken and was able to ask him about the site and was happy to learn he was starting it up again. And he did under a new name, the name it currently carries: koreaatourofduty.us.
Ken is unable to maintain the site now and the name is due to expire later this year which will shut down the site. The best way to protect it and keep it just the way Ken left it is to incorporate it into 2ida.org as a tribute to Ken’s service to the Army and to the history of the US Army in Korea. It is still his work and his “site” … we are just keeping it safe for him.
Please visit Korea, A Tour of Duty … just click on the name (to the left or on top) … and don’t forget to come back!!
