Moyen, Leon

Leon Moyen is a Korean War veteran who came from the small country of Luxembourg. He was born in 1930 and he enlisted in the army at the age of 16. When Leon first arrived in Korea, his main task was to do patrols. According to him, this job wasn’t always dangerous. Eventually he was given a different job – to act as a Double Crosser. This required crossing over enemy lines to do difficult commando operations. Leon saw intense combat during his time in Korea, and he was wounded on several occasions. After the war he chose to leave the military life and to focus on family, eventually emigrating to Canada.  Leon visited us in November 2017, for Remembrance Day, when he was interviewed by a group of CHC2D students for this project.
