AuDNet Pushes for Professional Hearing Tests for All Troops Returning from the Middle East.
Date:1/5/2013

Burnsville, MN (PRWEB) January 05, 2013

With the re-election of President Obama last November, the measured drawdown of troops from the Middle East will almost certainly continue as planned. The President has pledged to transition U.S. Forces in Afghanistan from their current combat role into a support role by the end of 2014.

According to the Hearing Health Foundation, more than 60 percent of soldiers could return with some type of hearing loss. The Department of Veterans Affairs cites tinnitus and hearing loss as the leading disabilities reported by returning veterans, followed by PTSD. Tinnitus is a high-pitched ringing or other sound in the ears that others cannot hear.

In a November 13, 2012, interview with NBC News, Brett Buchanan, a VA-accredited claims agent with Allsup, a national provider of services with disabilities, commented, "I suspect today’s generation of veterans – those who have been in a combat environment – probably have a higher severity of hearing loss (than past generations), especially with the explosions and the IEDs and the ruptured ear drums they’ve sustained.”

In December 2012, Mike Tianen, industrial hygienist aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, was quoted by MCLB Barstow that nearly half of all Marines suffer from some type of hearing loss as they transition to civilian life.

Hearing loss can make the transition from military to civilian lifestyle more difficult for veterans. '/>"/>
