In Memoriam Tom Clancy (1947-2013)

The Big Boss wasn’t entirely comfortable with what he was doing, Henriksen saw. Well, that was conscience for you. Shakespeare had written about the phenomenon.

—Tom Clancy, Rainbow Six, p. 582

…baseball, women, and family—the important things in the world.

—Tom Clancy, Threat Vector, p. 835

We technodudes and technodudesses at English Plus just want to take a moment to remember Mr. Clancy and the enjoyment he has given us over the years. Not only did he write entertaining stories, but he “got it.” He knew the military life and what the life of soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and coasties was like. He also saw the big picture in global conflict and international rivalry. For over 25 years we have become used to reading his tales every year or two. It will be a different America without him.

Mr. Clancy, may you find your eternal rest.
