Neptunus Lex – Guest Blogger asm826

Editor’s Note: A few years ago, when we had reposted most of the posts that neptunuslex reader advocaat had archived for his personal use (which, once Lex’s site went down proved invaluable), I started to comb the Wayback Machine archives to catch any additional posts we missed. Most of them were small, but many funny and a few gems, such as Bones, were retrieved from here.

But along the way were a series of posts from a reader, asm826, of his memories of being stationed in the Philippines in a Marine aviation squadron. Lex enjoyed his account as did I. I had them spread across by date on the Rest of index, but thought today that it would be better to have them all linked from their own page.

You’ll note a few of them are missing, because he entitled each chapter with a roman numeral. But in my second sweep of the archives, so far I have found a few more and I will continue to look.

In the meantime, here is what we have (most of them), to be enjoyed as Lex and his original readers enjoyed them.

As to asm826’s true identity, all that I know is that he was a Gunnery Sgt. Here in his epilogue, he reveals a bit more about himself.

Wherever you are, thank you for sharing your time here.
