Noise And Military Service: Implications For Hearing Loss And Tinnitus (2005)

Recommended Posts


It turns out that the Navy didn't really care about noise level until 1980. You would think that three years around A-7 aircraft exposure would be enough for them to see that my hearing lose is connected to JETS and that JETS make loud noise.

Touch and goes, were mostly when we were on land. The Aircraft would practice safe landing, and take-off again before they stopped with the trottle full open (129 DB for about 1 minute). As a plane captain we had to sit in the fuel pits, on land, and watch while they ran out of fuel before refueling them. I did refueling also as well as tow-tractor, huffer, and mobile generators.

Hello Stretch,

there's a huge list of research at the lower end of this page.

Wonder if anyone has researched the private sector & occupational exposures & compared awarded claims?

It's very difficult to believe, that with the extent of research on tinnitus & hearing loss, that the DOD, Dept. of Navy, Dept of Veterans affairs, NSO's & anyone with common since, (this apparently excludes VA adjudicators, health care & C&P examiners) doesn't know that MILITARY service will "RING YOUR BELL!".

If not from the illness, disease, Vaccines or Toxins. Than more than likely from trauma or noise exposure.


I find it disgusting, that a US NAVAL flight crew Captain, is put through the BS your subjected to, in order to PROVE how there is a "POSSIBLE NEXUS", between your documented NAVAL OCCUPATION and hearing loss, "BILATERAL" tinnitus and illnesses, when "MEDICAL SCIENCE" has already made the association.

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.
