Tom Clancy And Ronald Reagan - Two Of America's Greatest Defenders

James Jay Carafano at offers a column on the late President Ronald Reagan and thriller writer Ton Clancy, who died Tuesday.

Over the last four decades, only two people were able to make wide swaths of the American public really care about the importance of guarding against our nation’s enemies. One was Ronald Reagan. The other was Tom Clancy. The Gipper died in 2004, aged 93. Clancy died Tuesday in Baltimore, just 66 years old.

Despite their age difference, Reagan and Clancy had a lot in common. They loved this country more than anything. They most admired those who put service to nation above service to self. And both were gifted story tellers. Best of all, the stories each man told revealed large and necessary truths.
