Pop quiz: What’s the name of the big Marine Corps base in Onslow County?

Camp Lejeune, right?

Apparently the last name of the 13th Commandant for whom the base is name is pronounced ‘luh-jurn’ and not ‘luh-june’.

Former Marine Patrick Brent is coming to the base Friday to give a class to local reporters on just how to say General John A. Lejeune’s name.

Brent, a friend of the Lejeune family in Louisiana, aays it is disrespectful to not pronounce the general’s name properly.
