We learned, late, of the passing of Commander Jeffry L. Huber (retired) at the age of 57, on January 24, 2012.
He was one of ePluribus Media's bright bulbs who shined a light from his flight deck experience in a bounty of words wizened by U.S. Navy command and time on the USS Theodore Roosevelt. It all sharpened the satire in his critcally acclaimed Bathtub Admirals.
He graced not only our shores but through the wider appeal of his blog, Pen and Sword, the DailyKos, and AntiWar.com, among other venues.
The spirit of his humor and insighted commentary are a loss and will be missed by many.
RIP Commander Huber.
