|Bob Green was born and raised on the Green Ranch, northeast of Albany, Texas, where his pioneer father first settled in 1881. Recipient of both the Silver Star and the Bronze Star for his service in the Pacific Theater of Operation, Green saw action in the invasions of both Leyte and Okinawa.|
Best described as a Renaissance man, Green has served on many boards, including the Ranching Heritage Center at Texas Tech University, and was the co-narrator of the Fort Griffin Fandangle for twenty-seven years. He also co-authored For 500 Years: The Shackelford County Courthouse. Besides ranching and raising cattle, Green has a consuming interest in Native American lore, militar history and history of the American West. His passions extend to wildlife and ecology conservation, as well as music, including playing organ and accordion. His widely varied life experiences and interests, combined with his civic service, have made him a much sought-after storyteller and speaker, whose endearing sense of humor has engaged the hearts of his audiences as much as his friends and family. Green and his wife, Nancy, still live on the Green Ranch, where they raised three children and now enjoy their six grandchildren.
