The Wilson County Republican Party will welcome state Sen. Mark Green as its speaker Saturday.

The meeting will be at 9 a.m. at the Hampton Inn at 1065 Franklin Road in Lebanon off of the Hartmann Drive exit.

Green, who currently represents the 22nd Senate District, was an Army special operation flight surgeon assigned to the 160th Special Ops Aviation Regiment. There, he planned and flew on some of the War on Terror’s most covert operations.

His most memorable mission was the capture of Saddam Hussein. Green interviewed Hussein for six hours on the night of his capture and wrote a book detailing the interview.

Green is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, where he earned a degree in economics and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the infantry. As an Army Ranger, Green served in several leadership positions in the Infantry before attending medical school.

After leaving the Army, Green settled in Clarksville, where he currently serves as the president and chief executive office of Align MD, an emergency department staffing company, which provides leadership, management and staffing to emergency departments in four southeastern states. Green also founded Align MD Foundation, which provides health care to underserved populations throughout the world.

Green will share some of his experiences about his time in Iraq and his interview with Hussein. In addition, he will discuss some legislative issues surrounding the upcoming session.
