  Jeffry Lyle Huber, 57, died Jan. 24, 2012, in his home. No services are planned at this time. Condolences may be offered to the family at
Commander Jeff Huber, U.S. Navy (retired), was a naval flight officer who commanded an aircraft squadron and was operations officer of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, the carrier that fought the Kosovo War. Jeff earned a master of arts degree in post-modern imperialism at the U.S. Naval War College. His weekly satires on U.S. foreign policy high jinks are archived at his blog, Pen and Sword. Jeff's critically applauded novel Bathtub Admirals, a lampoon of America's rise to global dominance, is on sale now. Jeff lives with dogs in a house by the beach on Chesapeake Bay in Virginia, and in the summer he has a nice tan.
Besides writing for Daily Kos, Jeff also wrote articles for This was his last post at his blog Pen and Sword

Fools and Fanatics and Bull Feather Merchants

May the Goddess guide him on his journey to the Summerlands. May his family, friends and the world, find Peace.

The Wheel Turns

Blessed Be

Thank you to Diane Gee who posted this at Docudharma and asked me to post it here.

This is the final up date. I want to thank everyone for their kind words and their recommendations. I am going to post the link to this diary on Jeff's memorial page at Holloman-Brown. I hope it gives his family and friends some comfort knowing how well respected and loved Jeff was by this community.

I have one last thing to add, The Navy Hymn, with thanks to wishingwell  for the video. Both my step father and my uncle were Navy men who served in WW2  in the Pacific. They both would have liked Jeff's wry wit and knowledgeable insight.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
