He went on to become a Ranger in the U.S. Army and then part of the elite Special Forces and earned the coveted Combat Infantryman badge.

Kurt Cobain called him a 'moody metalhead', and he was fired from Soundgarden because it 'wasn't working out'.
So in 1993, at the age of 26, Everman joined the Army
The grunge guitarist got on a bus bound for Army training camp at Fort Benning in Georgia to undergo the 61-day training course.
The Rangers are the Army's elite infantry unit; Everman was one month into his training when Cobain committed suicide and his commanding officers and recruits figured out who he was.
According to his former Army colleagues, Everman never mentioned his past, but somehow it always found him out.
After his first enlistment, Everman's ambitions hadn't been satisfied and he applied for the Special Forces. It was during training that he watched a plane hit one of the twin towers and realized he was going to war.
The New York Times Magazine profile describes Everman 'riding horseback with the Pashtun, helicoptering in for midnight raids, sitting at a base for days at a time with absolutely nothing to do. Everman saw Soviet tanks rusting in the Panjshir Valley. He smelled the poppy fields outside of Kandahar.'
In war, Everman became a rockstar soldier. His cabin is filled with badges honoring his service to his country, and photographs of him with the nation's political leaders.
