Major General Harold Greene, P.E.,
Killed in Afghanistan
NSPE sends its deepest condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of Harold Greene, the US Army major general who became the highest-ranking American service member to be killed in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Maj. Gen. Greene, a professional engineer licensed in Virginia, held a bachelor's degree in materials engineering and a master's degree in management engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He also earned a PhD in materials science and a master’s in mechanical engineering from the University of Southern California.
NSPE is on a mission of organizational innovation and development to effectively serve the licensed professional engineer and those on the licensure path.
