9 November 2013 – Happy Birthday, Lex!

Lex in the Jet – Image stolen from Chant du Depart

Neptunus Lex was one of the first blogs I ever read and followed.  The title of the blog was also the nom de plume of the author.  Capt. Carroll LeFon was a wonderful father to his daughters and his sons as well as a great husband to his wife.

He blogged under a pen name while still on active duty in the U.S. Navy and continued to do so until his passing.  Capt. LeFon (Ret.) was lost at Fallon Naval Air Station in March of 2012 when the Kfir jet he was flying crashed as he was attempting to land in deplorable weather conditions.  We are still waiting for the official accident report from the NTSB.

All of that said, there are many others (including Old AF Sarge at Chant du Depart) along with myself who remember Lex every day.  We do, however, try to remember the good times more than the rest of the times.  Lex’s birthday is one of those occasions.

Please join me in wishing Capt. LeFon a happy birthday today :D

We miss you, Lex :)
