EP 026: Climbing Mt. Everest - USX 1st Lt. Elyse Ping Medvigy

Released April 5, 2016

What does it take to climb the highest mountain on Earth? Further, imagine achieving this feat as an amputee. Nonprofit organization U.S. Expeditions and Explorations (USX), hopes to be the first to summit the first active duty male and female Army soldier, and first combat wounded military. The mission is to bring more attention to the jarring numbers of veterans and soldiers struggling with PTSD and suicide.
