Ghost is alive. He is still in active service, yet with USMC now.
One of the most iconic computer game characters:
Lieutenant Simon “Ghost” Riley was a British special forces operator in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare 2: Ghost, Call of Duty: Online and Find Makarov: Operation Kingfish. He also appears as a customization option in Call of Duty: Ghosts. He is the second in command of Task Force 141, and is seen wearing dark red sunglasses and a skull-patterned balaclava along with a headset.
Washington: “What made you need to get up every day and put your nuts in the meat grinder?”
Riley: “Queen and Country”
— Washington to Riley during their time in Mexico.
