Carolinas Freedom Foundation celebrates freedom and honors veterans at the 2022 Freedom Breakfast at the Carmel Country Club on November 10th, where Matt Eversmann will deliver the keynote address.

First Sergeant (ret) Matt Eversmann personifies the qualities of duty, courage, and selfless service to succeed when ordinary circumstances become extraordinary challenges. On October 3, 1993, Matt was placed in charge of a group of Army Rangers to lead a daytime raid against an eager enemy militia. His inspiring story of survival was immortalized in the epic film, Black Hawk Down, which recounts the harrowing experience. For his actions on the battlefield, he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Valor device. During his remaining time in uniform, he worked at the Army War College, taught at The Johns Hopkins University, and was finally deployed to Iraq where he lived with the Iraqi Army for 15 months during The Surge. He remained on active duty until May of 2008 when he retired after 20 years of service.

Matt continues to lead a life of service through Eversmann Advisory, the organization he founded with his wife Tori, which is dedicated to helping soldiers avoid "the veterans' predicament" as they transition to life back home. In addition, Matt has maintained a connection to active-duty troops by visiting combat zones to interview soldiers. James Patterson, author of more than 241 New York Times best-sellers, saw some of these interviews and invited Matt Eversmann to co-author Walk in My Combat Boots, a compilation of true stories from America's bravest warriors. They published the book in February 2021.
