3M Earplugs and Veteran Hearing Loss

I used these stupid things too, as probably did many of you. The WSJ suggests at least some of the guys may get paid back for their hearing loss.

Evidence that trust remains important in business dealings and human interactions. The veterans trusted the military, which in turn trusted 3M, which in turn trusted its manufacturer.

Worth noting that the case is as yet undecided- and many cases in the past have been ruled on with bad scientific takes.

Regardless, I will say that the VA has been great with my father's hearing aids, even if he was only a post Korean War three years and out guy. Now if only he'd stop losing the damn things- VA does have a limit on how often you can get new ones.
