About the Author

Name: David Green
Nickname: Yoshi
Age: 27
Rank: SSG/E-6
Service: Army
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 agency.

Global Hotspot: Iraq

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?).
