Green Card Soldier

Publisher: Hellgate Press

Green Card Soldier is the story of Andro Babich--a naive, but inquisitive Bosnian teenage soccer star--as told by Heath Winslow--a cynical, self-deprecating war correspondent. Set amidst the civil-war ravaged Balkans of the early '90s, Winslow recounts Andro's exploits, including his daring escape to America where he receives a green card and joins the U.S. Army, ultimately earning his citizenship and a brand new life. Eventually he returns to post-war Bosnia-Herzegovina as a U.S. AID worker and discovers, through trial and tribulation, his life's purpose and his role in the rebirth of his homeland.
