Biography: Captain Harold Earls IV is an active duty Army officer currently serving as the Commander of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Harold is a graduate of West Point and is US Army Airborne Ranger qualified. Rachel Earls is a beloved vlogger, business owner and founder of Earls Family Foundation. She is host of the highly ranked “Earls Family Vlogs” on YouTube, which garners millions of views from followers who tune in regularly for Rachel and Harold’s discussions on faith, family life and love.

Both Harold and Rachel live in Falls Church, VA, where together they raise their sons Leo and Wyatt. They are the authors of “A Higher Calling” (WaterBrook, an imprint of Penguin Random House, June 2, 2020), that recounts details of their whirlwind romance and marriage that was prematurely faced with a life and death crisis during a dangerous 2016 Mount Everest summit. Through their story readers discover the value of appreciating and supporting individual dreams and goals in a relationship, focusing energy on serving versus gaining through a crisis, and how to live a life of gratitude and love in any stressful situation or hardship.
