There seems to be lots of veterans here getting 10% for Tinnitus. Does a hearing issue have to be in your service medical records to be considered for SC Tinnitus? There is no doubt I have Tinnitus but I didn’t notice it till after I retired from the USAF. I was a USMC flight line jet engine mechanic in the late 60s. Then I was an air cargo specialist as an USAF reservist with much flight line exposure including the 2-week annual active duty tours. After a 7-year stint with the USAFR I went on active duty with the USAF till retirement in 1998 spending most of my time in recruiting. So my main question is has anybody been awarded SC Tinnitus if it wasn’t noted in your service medical records.
