About the Author
Job: 46R Public Affairs Broadcast Specialist/Multinational
Forces Iraq Webmaster
Location: Baghdad, Iraq
I joined the Army in 1995 at 17 as a 19K1K4/M1A2 Armor
Crewman. I went through One Site Unit Training at Fort
Knox, Ky. I was assigned to 3-8 Cav, 1st Cavalry Division
Fort Hood, TX. In 1998 I reclassified my MOS to 46R/Public
Affairs Broadcast Specialist. Assignments since then
include 2nd Infantry Division (Camp Red Cloud, Korea),
1st Cavalry Division, III Corps, 4th PAD (all at Fort
Hood), AFN-Naples (Naples, Italy), Office of Chief of
Public Affairs-Soldiers Radio and Television (Pentagon/Alexandria,
VA), Multinational Forces-Iraq (Baghdad, Iraq). I'm
married to an IT2 in the Navy. No Children. Feel that
my experience in the military is unique in that after
only 10 years I've worked at every level of the Army
from the squad/crew level to Headquarters department
of the Army.
Just a simple little Blog, about a complex little man,
in a chaotic little land, covered in sand. This Blog
is a personal account of my experiences and in no way
is approved by, endorsed by, or connected to any government

Reverse Retina is broadcast loud and clear from an undisclosed location in Baghdad, Iraq. Click here to download David Green's latest, "Shockwave."
During his evening run, David is shocked by the explosive rumbling of a car bomb -- a shock that motivates him to run a little faster. After sending a clear message to iTunes for not featuring his podcast, he gives a shoutout to new podcaster, Holly Aho (visit her blog at Soldiers' Angel online).
David also ruminates on the role of technology, and wonders if his html skills will help him score a job after service (maybe?).
Podcast length: 18:43
