Pls Help!!
My father is a veteran of both the 2nd World War and the Korean war and 
believes he had his ear drums blown out during a severe mortar shelling 
in the Korean war.  He is 76 yrs old and has suffered considerable 
hearing loss in the last decade. The Pension Board disagrees, saying 
hearing loss would have occurred immediately after the shelling. Is it 
possible that hearing loss later on in life could be attributed to this 
earlier incident in the war? Any professional opinions would be greatly 
appreciated.

Sincerely


Mike Blanchfield
