Hearing issues are the most common service-connected disabilities among American veterans. A recent Washington Post article by Stephen Carlson – who served two tours of duty in Afghanistan as an infantryman – brings much-needed attention to hearing loss in the military.

Read the full story.

HLAA offers a free one-year membership to veterans, and also offers a complimentary HLAA Convention registration to veterans who have not attended before.
