Boise amputee is the first war-wounded veteran to summit Everest

Charlie Linville and Tim Medvetz, from The Heroes Project, trained to climb Everest in 2014 and 2015. Both times, natural disasters on the mountain prevented them from even starting to climb. On May 19, 2016, Charlie Linville became the first combat-wounded veteran to summit the world's highest peak. Katherine Jones / The Idaho Statesman
