Looking For List Of Usn Ships Causing Hearing Loss


Question

I am just starting to file a claim with the VA for service connected hearing loss. I served on a WWII Diesel Submarine With 4 huge diesels. I slept right next to the engine compartment. My local VA agent told me there is a list of ships that the VA has already acknowledged as having noise levels that cause hearing loss. He can't find it. Can anyone hear point me in the right direction or give me a link to another Vets forum etc. that might have this info?

I have not heard or seen a list of the ships as you mentioned. There are list of ships exposed to Agent Orange and list of ships infested with asbestos. 68mustang

Reference:  For more information on considering the Duty MOS Noise Exposure Listing, see M21-1MR, Part III, Subpart iv, 4.B.12.c.

Continued on next page

12.  Hearing Impairment, Continued

PRIVATE INFOTYPE="PROCEDURE"

c.  Considering the Duty MOS Noise Exposure Listing

The Duty MOS Noise Exposure Listing, which has been reviewed and endorsed by each branch of service, is available at http://vbaw.vba.va.gov/bl/21/rating/docs/dutymosnoise.xls

 

Based on the Veteran’s records, review each duty MOS, Air Force Specialty Code, rating, or duty assignment documented on the Duty MOS Noise Exposure Listing to determine the probability of exposure to hazardous noise.  

 

If the duty position is shown to have a “Highly Probable” or “Moderate” probability of hazardous noise exposure, concede exposure to hazardous noise for the purposes of establishing the in-service event.

 

Note:  The Duty MOS Noise Exposure Listing is not an exclusive means of establishing a Veteran’s in-service noise exposure.  Evaluate claims for service connection for hearing loss in light of the circumstances of the Veteran’s service and all available evidence, including treatment records and examination results.

 

Reference:  For more information on considering the circumstances of the Veteran’s service, see 38 U.S.C. 1154(a) and (b).

If you go to the Training & Fast Letters, Directives, Regulations Forum, you will find:

VHA Directive 2008-070

VA Fl 10-35

Auditory - Noise - Cam Regulation 40-5

Auditory - Noise - Fsh Regulation No. 40-7

Auditory - Noise -_Duty Mos/Job Title

I converted these documents over to readable for posting on hadit.

Since there are 5 of these suckers, just look them up on the forum. You might find other documents for other issues in here also.

I wish you good journey.

p.s. The Index for these is in the Announcement at the top of the page. There are descriptions of what each document covers. The documents within the forum do not show the descriptions, so take a moment to look at the Announcement/Index at the top. :)

"The Duty MOS Noise Exposure Listing, which has been reviewed and endorsed by each branch of service, is available at http://vbaw.vba.va.g...utymosnoise.xls"

This link does not work.

fanaticbooks- None of these pertains to Navy ships. These are mostly from the Army. I am looking for a list of US Navy ships that are considered to cause hearing loss.

I found the following previous post by others here on hadit. Remember that hearing loss and tinnitus are two different issues.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
