The president last week nominated Dr. Mark E. Green to be the next secretary of the Army. Dr. Green, a Life member of VFW Post 11160 in Clarksville, Tenn., is the CEO of Align MD, an emergency staffing company for 47 hospitals in nine states. He is also the Tennessee State Senator for District 22. He graduated from West Point in 1986 as an infantry officer, and would serve as a rifle platoon leader, scout platoon leader, and airborne rifle company commander with the 82nd Airborne Division. As an Army physician, he served in the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment and made three combat tours to the Middle East. A Senate confirmation hearing date has yet to be set.
