Second Lieutenant Harold Earls is President and co-founder of USX. He pioneered the idea behind USX while still a cadet in the U.S. Military Academy. After graduating from West Point, Earls put his PTSD solution-based school project into action and decided to launch USX in 2015 with an ambitious first expedition: summiting Mount Everest. He quickly assembled the first USX team that trained in the fall of 2015 at Mount Rainier.
