#HearingFactFriday: Hearing loss and tinnitus are common amongst veterans

As we approach Veteran’s Day and get ready to say thanks to the many men and women who serve—and have served—our country, it’s a good time to remember that a significant number of them now live with hearing loss, tinnitus or both.

Why they do is no surprise. Exposure to loud noise is common in the military — and is a leading cause of both tinnitus and hearing loss.

Fortunately, treatment for hearing loss and tinnitus is available through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) — and Starkey Hearing Technologies is proud to supply hearing aids and hearing healthcare to the clinics that serve our veterans.  

For more information and resources about hearing loss, tinnitus and how to get help, visit the Veterans section of our site.
