Overview: Cong. Mark Green (TN) -- a new Member on Homeland Security and Oversight & Reform -- began his public service career by attending West Point.
Throughout his life, first in the Army and then as a TN State Senator, Mark’s life experiences make him ideally suited to serve Tennesseans of the 7th district. Cong. Green’s experience building a successful healthcare company equips him to take on wasteful spending and over regulation. His 24 years of service, between the Academy, active duty Army and Army Reserves -- including two trips to Iraq and one to Afghanistan -- have impressed upon him the need for strong American leadership internationally, a globally responsive military and a well-cared for military family.
As a physician, Green brings the unique perspective of doctor, healthcare administrator and cancer survivor to the issues surrounding healthcare in America. His legislative experience in Tennessee readies him to fight for all our rights and liberties, including religious liberty and the right to bear arms.
Mark's last assignment was in the Army as the flight surgeon for the premier special operations aviation regiment -- the Night Stalkers. He deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan in the War on Terror. His most memorable mission was the capture of Saddam Hussein. During the mission, he interrogated Hussein for six hours. The encounter is detailed in a book Green authored, A Night With Saddam. Cong Green was awarded the Bronze Star, the Air Medal with V Device for Valor, among many others.
After his service in the Army, he founded an emergency department staffing company that grew to over $200 million in annual revenue. The company provided staffing to 52 hospitals across 11 states. He also founded two free medical clinics that provide healthcare to under-served populations in Memphis and Clarksville as well as numerous medical mission trips throughout the world. He was elected to the TN State Senate in 2012 where he won the National Federation of Independent Businesses’ Guardian of Small Business award, Latinos for Tennessee’s Legislator of the Year among many other numerous awards. He resides with his family in Clarksville, TN.
