Attached is the Schedule of ratings for the Ear and the Schedule for impairment of hearing. Again, like all conditions, the loss of hearing must be unfitting. This is often times difficult to show because use of hearing aid usually allows servicemember to perform their duties. I have had success with combat arms Soldiers who could not hear commands while maneuvering being found unfit. I imagine certain other jobs, like Sonarman or Radio Telephone Operator might be unfit if hearing aids do not allow for enough clarity in communication.
