RIP Warrior, Vaya con Dios..

THOMAS H. GREER Major, US Army (Retired)
1964 - October 21, 2016

MAJ (Ret.) Thomas Harter Greer, age 52, of Rhine, GA, died Friday, October 21, 2016, at his residence.

Funeral services will be held at 2:00 PM Monday, October 24, at Sand Grove Baptist Church with Reverend Joey Bohannon, Reverend Danny Gay, LTG Scott Miller, CSM (Ret.) Greg Birch and MSG (Ret.) Max Mullen officiating. Interment will follow in Sand Grove Baptist Church Cemetery.

Major Greer retired in February 2005 after more than twenty years in the US Army. He served fifteen years in special operations units, as both a non-commissioned and commissioned officer. Most notably, he served as an instructor at the US Army Ranger School, eight years in the 75th Ranger Regiment, and five years as an operational member of Delta Force.

Major Greer spent 22 months in three separate hostile fire zones and was twice decorated for valor for combat actions in Afghanistan. He hunted war criminals in the Balkans, was the assault force commander on numerous direct action raids against Al Qaeda and Taliban personalities in Afghanistan, and participated in the hunt for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in Iraq. In all three hot spots, Tom operated with intelligence analysts and operatives from the CIA and worked extensively with foreign allied special operations forces and Navy SEALs during Operation Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.

Following retirement, Major Greer served as the Senior Army Instructor for the Army JROTC program at Dodge County High School for one year. He then worked in the Nuclear Security industry for the next 10 years. His expertise has strengthened the security of all sixty Nuclear Power plants in America. He also served as chief military consultant for Sledgehammer Games during the making of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 and Advanced Warfare.

Tom is also a New York Times Best Selling author. His first book, Kill Bin Laden, was the true account of his experiences as the senior special operations ground force commander during the hunt for Osama Bin Laden in the Tora Bora mountains of Afghanistan in November 2001. The proceeds from this publication were donated to Special Operations Warrior Foundation, an organization that ensures surviving family members of our nation's dedicated special operators can pursue their dreams through higher education. He went on to author a series of Delta Force thrillers under the pen name, Dalton Fury. He was also owner and operator of DF Customs, LLC.

Tom graduated from Mount Vernon HS in Alexandria, Virginia in 1982. He earned a BS in History from Columbus College and a MA in Homeland Security with a concentration in Terrorism Studies from American Military University.

His proudest achievement in life was his relationship with Jesus Christ and being “daddy” to his two wonderful daughters. Tom was a member of Sand Grove Baptist Church.

Tom was the son of the late LTC (Ret.) Robert H. Greer and the late Peggy Daugherty Greer. He is the son-in-law of the late Mr. and Mrs. L.A. Watkins. Survivors include his wife of 26 years, Deidre W. Greer, his two daughters, Caitlin and Claire, his brother, CSM (Ret.) Steven (Jennifer) Greer, his aunt, Patricia G. (Jerry) Miller of Uniontown, OH, and uncles, Mike Greer of N Canton, OH and Oscar Stuckey of Cordele, GA. He was also survived by sister-in-law Pam (Tony) Knowles, brothers-in-law Tim (Brenda) Watkins, Mike (Elaine) Watkins, and Terry (Donna) Watkins, and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family may be contacted at the Greer residence, 317 Walker Road, Milan, GA and will receive friends in the Southerland Funeral Chapel from 5:00PM-7:00PM Sunday, October 23. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Task Force Dagger Foundation, 5900 South Lake Forest Drive, Suite 200, McKinney, TX 75070 (www.taskforcedagger.org) or the church of your choice.
