Fair Winds, Lex
We have lost another one of our own.
Retired Top Gun pilot US Navy Captain Carroll LeFon was killed yesterday when his F-21 Kfir jet crashed at Naval Air Station Fallon in Nevada. To those of us in the milblog community, Captain LeFon was better known as Lex of the blog Neptunus Lex.
Lex loved his family, he loved writing, and he loved flying. He didn't want to spend the rest of his life "in a cube". He died passing on that love of flying to the next generation of pilots. He was a beloved husband, father, and son. He was a Patriot. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. May God hold and comfort them in their pain.
Godspeed, Lex. Our hearts are broken.
