Spc. Frederick Greene, 29, of Mountain City, Tenn., was identified as the solider whose gunshot wounds were ‘consistent’ with him trying to charge Hasan, Dr. Phillip Berran, a pathologist, said. He reviewed photos of Greene’s body for the judge before jurors were led into the courtroom.
Greene, who was married with two children, and was known as the ‘Silent Soldier’ around base because he was laid-back. He was active at Baker’s Gap Baptist Church in his hometown while he was growing up, Glenn Arney, the church’s former superintendent and a former co-worker, said shortly after the November 2009 shooting.
“I went to church with him, knew him all of his life. He was one of the finest boys you ever saw,” Arney said.
Greene’s family issued a statement shortly after his death that said, “Fred was a loved and loving son, husband and father, and often acted as the protector of his family. Even before joining the Army, he exemplified the Army values of loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage. Many of his fellow soldiers told us he was the quiet professional of the unit, never complaining about a job, and often volunteering when needed.”
