Obama horribly mispronounces Camp LeJeune
Hannity | 8/7/2013 | FreeAtlanta

Posted on 08/07/2013 1:41:07 PM PDT by FreeAtlanta

Just listening to Hannity and they jipped in on Obama's speech right as he flubbed LeJeune. What a doofus.

I don't have the audio, so if anyone can dig it up and post it here, it will be appreciated.

Google results for pronouncing Lejeune ...

... for the past few years, the correct pronunciation of ‘Camp Luh-jern’ has been gaining traction. For the old farts, it’s hard to change.

Hate to say it, but I have just learned that that pronunciation, although not common, might in this case be "correct".

This just so pisses me off.

What do you suppose would happen if we called him a dumb chimp, as they did to Bush every time he made a pronunciation error? Yep.

That why they put him on the ticket. Race card, no other reason.

My son was stationed there when he was in the Marines, and I heard it pronounced like Le June, but with a softer sound to the June, like Shune. Being from Louisiana, we tend to Frenchify pronunciations anyway.

I’ve heard of “silent r”, but never an “implied r”. I’m just an old fart and will stay with le-june. Let the gunny try to correct me.

In Louisiana the name is correctly pronounced “le zhun”. If the General pronounced his name with a hard and obvious “R”, he would have been the only Louisianian ever to do so.

It’s also a reminder than no one in his multi-million dollar entourage cares enough to worry about such piddling things like the name of a military base. Every last one of them are as anti-American and Marxist as he is. *SPIT*

I’ve never been stationed there, but have been TAD there many times in a civilian capacity.

When the Commanding General corrects your pronunciation, you take note. They are actively trying to change the pronunciation to ‘Camp Luh-jern’.

In the same way, they are trying to change the pronunciation of Kadena AFB. But for us old farts, it’s hard to change.

Chuckles - how else would you pronounce it other than: ka-dee-nah

A little anecdote: when I was first stationed on “the rock”, we would go to the chow hall at Kadena on Saturday mornings. Compared to Marine chow, the chow hall at Kadena was like going to a fancy resturant - eggs & steak to order, it was nice.

After a while though, someone got smart and figured that even though we were all DoD, our Marine chow hall passes could no longer be used at an Air Force facility.

Sigh, it was great while it lasted...

Names out of the past. Man - that was a long time ago.

I remember being a young Lance Corporal and looking at one of our MstrGny Sgts (he’d been in 30+ years) thinking “man - he looks OLD!” .

If I’d stayed in, I’d be at 32 years. Sheesh, I probably look as ancient to today’s young bucks as he did in his day.

The Air Force chow used to be pretty nice.

On The Rock, there was a halfhearted attempt to get the Gaijins to say Kah-den-ah — no long “e”. The campaign has fallen flat. After pronouncing Kadena one way for 30-40 years, it’s hard to change.

We were there for 3 years and it was always pronounced Camp ‘La June’ Civilians and military pronounced it that way.
