STEP OUT, STEP UP: Lessons Learned from a Lifetime of Transition and Military Service
by Mark Green and Echo Montgomery Garrett
Lieutenant Colonel Mark E. Green (Retired U.S. Army), who worked his way up from an enlisted man, reveals his life story in *Step Out, Step Up: Lessons Learned from a Lifetime of Transitions and Military Service* to encourage others to have hope and recognize that no matter where you come from, you can achieve your dreams. He served his country for 34 years (24 years in active duty). He was a member of the 82nd Airborne and “Soldier of the Year” for his battalion and as well as a pioneering member of the Army’s Taekwondo team that went on to be recognized as the All Army Teams who compete for the Olympics. Green has commanded an Engineer Unit in Hawaii; and served two tours as an Inspector General, including a year-long deployment to Afghanistan where he was responsible for that role in the southern half of the country. After sustaining a potentially career-ending hip injury in his last month of deployment, he had to learn to walk again. He has devoted the remainder of his career to helping his fellow veterans and their families with transition and resilience.
