- "Called Upon First…" 5, Medical (Combat). It is said that before a wounded soldier calls on God or their own mother, they will call the medic first. Forrest will do his best to ensure that his allies survive, regardless of the raging fire around him. This spec grants Forrest a medical bonus when treating someone under combat conditions.
- "Preventative Medicine" 4, Ranged (Small Arms). It has become increasingly common for medics to arm themselves, as the enemies they encountered either were too busy fighting to respect the Geneva conventions, or did not care about following the rules of war. Forrest and other like-minded medics came to the conclusion that protecting themselves was more useful than being unarmed and unable to defend themselves and their patients. This spec grants Forrest a ranged fighting bonus while attending to a patient.
- Country Specialist: 3, Survival (Forested Areas). Forrest has grown up among the fields and forests around him - he knows what to look for animals and wild plants, and how to survive off the lay of the land. This spec grants Forrest a survival bonus when he is in forested or field areas common to the States.

Born on August 15, 1919, Forrest Hawksley Green was raised by a devoted mother and an equally devoted father, who managed to survive the meat grinder that was the First Great War. Relatively well off in the Great Plains as farmers, he helped to manage the farm and take care of his ailing father, whose injuries from trench fighting have left him crippled.
During the Great Depression, the Greens were aided by (and aided) their neighbors, the Rodriguez family. Their daughter, Gaile Rodriguez, held a steady crush for Forrest, and he also felt the same. Both young and reckless (but with the blessings of their parents), they both were married in June 14, 1939, as the economy picked back up.
Their marriage was not to last. Forrest was drafted to serve in 1940 - he bid his wife farewell, promising his return to her.
Throughout his military and specialist training, Forrest developed a talent for piercing remarks and his otherwise carefree attitude, which contrasted against his skill with the gun and his skill with the scalpel. Forrest was confident that he would not need his shooting skills other than for hunting.
As a cruel twist of fate, Normandy proved him wrong. Nothing could have prepared Forrest or any of his newly made friends for the carnage and utter disregard for the sanctity of human life that surrounded and consumed them. Under such hellish conditions, Forrest scrambled from one fallen soldier to the next - how many he saved, he cannot hope to remember; how many died, he cannot drink enough to forget.
Surviving the beaches of Omaha, he continued his tour along the French country and up to the Battle of the Bulge, where his unit was nearly wiped out. A few survivors, including him, were eventually moved into other units, with his unit not seeing combat for the rest of his days in Europe.
After the war, he returned - however, Gaile was not there for him. His parents, nor her parents, could hope to explain what happened to her. Nothing indicated why she left or where she went to. Hardened by war and determined to find what was left of his pre-war life, Forrest began to travel the countryside - offering some assistance to poorer communities along the way in trade for food, shelter, supplies, and information.
His search for Gaile was cut short in 1957, his searching bringing him to the Everglades. There, he encountered the anomalous for the first time, with elements of the Church of the Broken God in the countryside. His medical experience and his fighting experience could not prepare him for the clockwork monstrosities that he was forced to flee from. His life was only spared when he ran into a Foundation reconnaissance team, with enough firepower and expertise to take down the larger anomalies that terrorized the area. Forrest distinguished himself in this turn of events by providing battlefield care to elements of the recon team when they were injured.
After the team's operation, Forrest was brought in for interrogation. Searching through his records and finding nothing of concern, Forrest was given two options - either they wipe his brain of the memories of what he saw and he could continue on with his life, or he could join the Foundation. Forrest, still searching for his wife, joined the Foundation.
