Deaf soldiers [not] in the military

Found this Tedx talk by Keith Nolan, a man who wants to join the military but has been continually rejected because he is deaf/Deaf.  The talk also discusses the role of people with disabilities in the military [it is a brief discussion of soldiers wounded in war - but who have returned in various roles].  Nolan also discusses interview he conducted with Deaf soldiers who are in the military in Israel. He is actively working to have the U.S. policy of rejecting disabled people changed.  So - if this is of interest:
