For Veteran's Day, a Musician Turned Military Hero

The library will have limited hours on Monday, November 11, 12:00 p.m. - 5:45 p.m. in observance of Veteran's Day.

But to pay homage to the holiday, here's an article from the New York Times about Jason Everman. After being kicked out of both Nirvana and Soundgarden, he went on to a distinguished career U.S. Army Special Forces.

The Rock ’n’ Roll Casualty Who Became a War Hero

You can listen to Everman on guitar with Nirvana on Bleach (CD 25662) and on bass with Soundgarden on Telephantasm (CD 32002-32003), but his work in the military is much more impressive.
