From The Norwalk Hour January 5, 1953


With the Infantry Division in Korea – Army Private Leland D. Weymouth, son of Mr. and Mrs. Leland D. Weymouth, 57 Flax Hill Road, South Norwalk, Connecticut, is returning to the United States from Korea under the rotation program. He served with the Infantry Division, the outfit which has seen action in every sector of the Koreans fighting since landing at Inchon in September 1950. World War II veterans will remember this same division joined in the assault landing on Okinawa in April 1945 and drove from the West to the East Coast on the first day. It engaged in a savage 51-day battle in the hills of southern Okinawa until the island was secure. A member of the 32nd Infantry Regiment, Weymouth entered the Army in May 1951, arriving in Korea last January. He holds the Purple Heart Medal received for wounds sustained in action.
