LtGen. John & Ellie Lejeune’s Wedding (video feature story)

LtGen. John A. Lejeune’s Wedding, Portsmouth, VA 1985 video link

Although subsequent research revealed U.S. Marine Corp icon LtGen John Lejeune did not marry at the couple’s church, St. John’s Episcopal in Portsmouth, Virginia, this final project for a great class is otherwise correct.

The wedding was moved due to the very unexpected death of Ellie’s younger brother just weeks before the wedding. So in order to observe the mourning, the fine Marine and his lovely bride were married in the parlor of her family home, just a short walk from their parish.
