The path from the rock career to a respectable SOF operator was easy for Jason Everman. Tales of combat stories from a friend, a former Navy SEAL, inspired Jason Everman who was restless with his rock career and were in pursuit of new life challenges. The stories of brotherhood and combat experience triggered his decision to join the Rangers. He turned his back on “this world of cool,” as he said in the video. He felt “free.”
Jason Everman was born on October 16, 1967, at Ouzinkie (then-part of Kodiak), Alaska, United States. He was not an ordinary guy, instead of that, he was the man who was kicked out of two rock bands, Nirvana and Soundgarden.
