Not every wounded warrior who comes back from battle overseas has an obvious or noticeable disability.  Many returning veterans sometimes  barely even notice themselves that they might have a hearing problem.  Needless to say, military activity involves, shots, booms, bangs, and other loud, potentially damaging noise, which can cause a veteran to not be able to hear certain sounds.  The University of California Riverside runs a research lab where they're working on video game therapies to help veterans with those unusual hearing problems.  KVCR's Natalya Estrada has the story.
