USX was created to highlight the challenges of veterans face after returning home, to give them a new purpose, and to help them overcome PTSD. Their first expedition was to climb Mount Everest and they accomplished this on May 24th. In doing so the USX team set several records for first combat amputee, first female soldier, and first active duty US soldier to climb Mount Everest. We wish them the best of luck in their future expeditions. You can view USX's post here.
During their ascent of Mount Everest the USX team was featured on several media outlets. To learn more about the organization and their activities visit the USX website and follow the USX expeditions on Facebook.
