The sad news came out early today: retired TOPGUN pilot US Navy Captain Carroll LeFon, better known as Lex of the military blog Neptunus Lex was killed Tuesday when a jet he was flying crashed at Naval Air Station Fallon in Nevada.
I didn’t know Carroll personally, but we exchanged e-mails over the years and we were of like mind. Like me, he felt the urge to express himself and his blog filled that need.
Last year Neptunus Lex won Best US Military Veteran Blog at MilBlogging so in that at least he went out at the top of his game.
Farewell, fellow warrior . . . see you on the other side . . .
Into the Wild Blue Yonder . . .
