This collection contains the cards, writings, personal and official documents of Lieutenant Colonel Linda L. Green. Linda L. Green is a retired military officer who has membership in various societies. Among these, she has held membership or is affiliated with the United States Daughters of 1812, the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Daughters of the Union Veterans of the Civil War. She served a term as president of the National Society of the United States Daughters of 1812 in the District of Columbia in 2005 (the final date mentioned in this collection is 2009). These societies have a commitment to preserving the memories of those soldiers of past conflicts through dedication ceremonies and other publicized events. These papers document much of the activities of these groups.

The book is entitled, "First, For the Duration." Another book mentioned in this collection, called "Logistics Engineering," is also authored by her. She has written articles for Alabama Genealogical Society, United Daughters of the Confederacy Magazine and The Ripley County Heritage. She has also compiled agricultural census data and marriage records for many states in the south for periods throughout the 1800s.
Linda L. Green received a B.A. in History and an M.A. in History from East Carolina University. She is a graduate of many logistics courses from the Army Logistics Management Center, the Naval War College and the Army Command and General Staff College. Prior to joining the Army, she was an Assistant Professor of History at Jackson State College in Jackson, Mississippi.
