According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, hearing loss, tinnitus, and other hearing problems is the most prevalent “service connected” medical condition among veterans. As of 2017, at least one million U.S. military veterans were receiving disability for hearing loss. Another 1.6 million U.S. military veterans were receiving disability for tinnitus. It is thought that both of these numbers are much higher, but some veterans have not yet noticed, or reported, their symptoms.
