The HearStrong Foundation recently celebrated Jim Hogan, a veteran of the U.S. Navy, as a HearStrong Champion alongside representatives of EarQ, the foundation’s main sponsor, during a special ceremony at the Academy of Doctors of Audiology Convention in Las Vegas.

“Today, roughly 60 percent of veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan have some degree of hearing loss,” said Ed Keller, founder of the HearStrong Foundation. “By recognizing Jim for his incredible accomplishments, we hope to inspire other veterans to seek the hearing solutions they need to help them reconnect to the people and things that matter most.”

Nominated by Audiology Associates of Santa Clarita, Hogan was diagnosed with hearing loss as a young boy and quickly began utilizing hearing devices. Determined to fulfill his dream of serving his country, Hogan enlisted in the Navy following his graduation from high school in 1966. After serving four and a half years in Vietnam combat areas, Hogan re-entered civilian life in 1973.

Ten years later, Hogan was diagnosed with Ushers II, a degenerative disease that causes vision and hearing loss. Never one to be held back, he continued to enthusiastically maintain his active lifestyle.

“My wife and I camp, bike, hike, enter parades and attend concerts,” said Hogan. “My hearing devices (and guide dog, Atticus) enable me to be more independent!”
