Matt Eversmann, portrayed in the film “Black Hawk Down,” is the co-founder of Eversmann Advisory, along with his wife Tori. Together, they are on a mission to help Veterans find the best employment opportunity possible.
Matt enlisted in the Army as an infantryman in December 1987 and was stationed at Fort Drum, NY with the 10th Mountain Division. In 1992, he reenlisted and arrived at Fort Benning, GA for his assignment in the Third Battalion, Seventy Fifth Ranger Regiment. He spent eight-and-a-half years in the Regiment, serving as a squad leader, a weapons squad leader, the Battalion Air Operations Sergeant, the battalion liaison sergeant and a Platoon Sergeant. Matt was also the officer in charge of the 75th Ranger Regiment’s Pre-Ranger Course that helped train future leaders to pass the grueling Army Ranger School.
Matt’s service took him around the world, from Panama to England, Korea to Egypt, and in August 1993, to Mogadishu, Somalia in support of Operation Gothic Serpent. For his service in Somalia, Matt was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Valor device and the Combat Infantryman’s Badge.
Matt’s last military assignment was in Iraq during the surge from 2006-2007. He and his men spent 15 months fighting Al-Qaeda and implementing the counterinsurgency strategy.
Today, Matt lectures about his military experiences to both military and professional communities. He and his wife also host the Veterans Nation podcast, which aims to explore how ordinary people can disrupt the status quo for their families, communities and the world. Through interviews with disruptors from around the world, the pair looks to give Veterans advice on how to be successful in their transition to the civilian world.
