I didn't know this. He is one of my favorites. The Mitch Rapp series is great.

Tom Clancy is another of the great military/suspense novelists. The Jack Ryan series is great and several his offshoot stuff is quite good as well. He will be missed.

That's so sad.. I read every one of his Ryan series.. until the kids needed shelf space they were all out in order on my shelf.. just started reading one not to long ago... RIP Mr. clancy
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
