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.

WARRIOR’s CODE 001: Secrets to Triumphant Transition
While serving as an Inspector General in Afghanistan, Mark E. Green (Lt. Colonel U.S. Army Retired) suffered a potentially career ending hip injury during his last month of deployment. Green fought his way back to full health battling daily through an arduous recovery as he was faced with the daunting reality that he had to learn to walk again. During his recovery, the once active Green utilized his life-altering injury as the basis for the *Warrior’s Code 001* where his mindset became the RESET. His secrets for overcoming daily adversities has now become the stepping stone to his personal best. In this book, he shares those secrets to developing a mindset that increases resiliency and serves as a bridge in aiding in the transition and re-integration process for veterans and their families – strategies he developed from his own traumatic experiences with family, hard-earned lessons, continuing education and five years spent as an Inspector General working through serious issues and concerns of soldiers and their families. Garrett, a 30-year journalist, interviewed numerous veterans from different branches of the service, and their stories about transition are included, too. Green is presently establishing a curriculum based on his *7 Secrets to Remarkable Resilience and Triumphant Transition* and is devoting the remainder of his career to helping his military brothers and sisters and their families.
