The Gallery at Fort Lee Public library will be displaying the personal photographs of Mr. Bob Leddy taken during the Korean War. The exhibit was rescheduled from November 2012.
Drafted into the army in October 1951, Bob Leddy went to camp Chaffee, Arkansas to complete his basic training and upon completion he was assigned to the 630-Ordinance Ammunition Company stationed in Korea. Mr. Leddy set sail from Seattle, Washington to Busan (formally spelled, Pusan) Korea then proceeded by train to Seoul from where he went by truck North to the 38th parallel and the 630-Ordinance Ammunition Company where he spent the next 15 months distributing ammunition to units. There was a lot to photograph in Korea between the military installations and the poverty of the people. The pictures tell the rest of the story. This collection of rare photographs from Mr. Leddy’s personal collection has been displayed in various libraries in Bergen County.
The Gallery is open during library hours. For more information please visit:
