Two years ago today, widely respected (and read) military blogger Captain Carroll “Lex” LeFon, USN, Ret., was killed.

Man I miss him.  I never did read the final accident report, but he ran out of gas trying to land an antiquated jet fighter in a blinding snowstorm at NAS Fallon, NV.  He was such a hoss.  I am amazed at how much I still miss this man I never personally met, and how much his loss still hurts.

For a while the family kept his blog open, but it appears gone, now.  I miss it, a lot. Even after he died, I would go back and read old posts, just because I liked how he wrote so well.  For years, the first thing I did every morning was read Neptunus Lex, and it was a treat.

I missed the anniversary of his death last year.  I am glad I did not miss it this year.  There is a great tribute, here, from which I am stealing a bit:

Re-posting a video of Lex doing what he did best:

God rest you, Carroll Lefon, I have prayed for the repose of your soul every day since you passed and will continue to do so, God-willing, for the rest of my life. You are an intention at every Mass I assist at, along with many other people.
