John A. Lejeune
Lieutenant General John Archer Lejeune (1867-1942) was born at Pointe Coupee, Louisiana. He graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1888 and became a second lieutenant in the Marine Corps in 1890.
 
Lejeune served as a young officer during the 1898 Spanish-American War. He fought in campaigns in Panama, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic, and he participated in the occupations of Veracruz, Mexico, and Nicaragua.
 
During World War I, Lejeune received the Legion of Honor and the Croix de Guerre from the French and Distinguished Service Medals from the U.S. Army and the Navy. He was the first Marine general to command an Army division.
 
Lejeune was determined to make the Marine Corps into an important amphibious force for expeditionary use by the Navy. As Major General Commandant of the Corps from June 1920 to March 1929, Lejeune emphasized equipping and training the Marines to be instantly ready to support the naval fleet in time of war, in the air, on land, and sea.
 
Lejeune served more than 40 years with the Marines. He is often called “the greatest of all leathernecks.” Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, is named in his honor.
