About Eugenia Dickson Lejeune

In a 1979 interview, Colonel Streeter confided she was greatly amused that WRs were in "secret and confidential files" because ". . . they always claim that women can't keep a confidence, you know." One WR second lieutenant assigned to secret and confidential files presumably had little trouble with the security clearance — Eugenia D. Lejeune, the youngest daughter of Major General Commandant John A. Lejeune. ( http://www.nps.gov/npshistory/online_books/npswapa/extContent/usmc/pcn-190-003129-00/sec9.htm ).
