You may have known him by his pen name, Dalton Fury. But in life, he was known as Tom Greer. Not long ago, we told you that Tom had terminal pancreatic cancer. I’m sorry to say that he recently passed away from cancer at age 52.
He wrote the book, “Killing Bin Ladin” about his time as an Army officer in Delta, and also created a series of fiction fearuring ex-Delta Operator Kolt Raynor. I think there was a lot of Tom in Kolt.
He was a great man, both in and out of uniform. He would often travel to Atlanta’s Hartsfield International airport near his home to give copies of his books to service members and that was the majority of my interaction with him. I sent him copies of his books to hand out. I supported his work via SSD, and exchanged notes. I’m very sorry to see him taken so young. He’s a man who still had a lot to offer the world.
He will be missed.
Initially, I didn’t want to post about his passing, not wanting it to be a spectacle. Even though he had written several nooks, he was not a public man and I’m not sure that anything I could say would properly honor the man. Then, his brother CSM Steve Greer, shared this video memorial to Tom, so my feelings changed on the subject. It’s solemn and I found it a very fitting tribute.
Rest In Peace
