Delete the opacity style on line 824 of theme_flat.css (http://cjehost.com/ncjwla3/wp-content/themes/flat-bootstrap/css/theme-flat.css?ver=20140913)
.carousel-caption {

  color: #fff;
  font-weight: bold;
/*  opacity: 0.75; DELETE THIS */
  text-shadow: none;
}

If you need to decrease the opacity of the background then change the rgba() value
.carousel-caption {
  background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5) none repeat scroll 0 0 !important; /* HERE - AND IN YOUR MEDIA QUERY */
  bottom: 0;
  color: #fff;
  display: block;
  font-weight: normal;
  left: 80%;
  right: 0;
  text-align: left;
  top: 0;
}
