I reblogged this yesterday from My Blog, but felt that it needed more. Neptunus Lex was one of the first Milblogs that I stumbled onto and was a daily read for years. He will be sorely missed. His writing was exemplary.

Here’s Ace’s take on the loss of Lex.

Captain Carroll “Lex” LeFon (USN, Ret)…RIP

It’s a strange world we live in where we are friends with people we’ve never met. That’s the beauty of this internet thing of ours. The tragic part is when we lose one of the friends we haven’t really met but we known them, or at least the part of them they choose to share with us.

While we are still stunned at the loss of Andrew Breitbart, many of us follow the world through the eyes of milbloggers have lost another friend, Lex of Neptunus Lex. It wasn’t the random and almost unfathomable loss of a man in his prime passing on his way home but rather an ever present possible outcome for a man who slipped into a fighter jet and took the skies.
