Pronunciation of Camp Lejeune raises eyebrows
There has been recent speculation on the pronunciation of Camp Lejeune. The military base is named after Lt. Gen. John A. Lejeune. The family has a French and Creole background, which causes the name to be pronounced “Luh-JERN.” Former Marine Patrick Brent has written several articles on the issue.
