Living… in the middle of hell. What was supposed to be a routine mission into warlord-controlled Somalia has turned into a fierce battle for mere survival.
Visiting… Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu. The warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid has ravaged the city and sent hundreds of thousands into famine. Eversmann and his fellow U.S. Army Rangers including John Grimes have been sent in to capture two of the warlord’s top advisors.
Profession… soldier.He’s a staff sergeant, but when his Lieutenant has to be removed from duty due to a seizure, Eversmann finds himself as the leader of Ranger Chalk Four. He’s never led his own platoon before – and this happened to be the worst mission on which to learn how to lead.
Interests… his duty. Eversmann did not become a Ranger just for fun, he did it to improve the world. As he puts it, “Look, these people… they have no jobs, no food, no education, no future. I just figure that... we have two things we can do. We can help, or we can sit back and watch a country destroy itself on CNN.”
Challenge… staying alive. When things go horribly wrong, Eversmann and his men find themselves in the middle of Mogadishu surrounded by hostile militants. “We’re Rangers,” he says to buck his men up, “not some sorry-ass JROTC. We’re elite. Let’s act like it out there.”
Personality… tough and perseverant. All of the odds are against Eversmann, yet he continues to fight. In his words, “Nobody asks to be a hero. It just sometimes turns out that way.”
