Good Lord, there might be someone on this board whom is crazier than I am!   Be afraid, be very afraid....

Actually, this got me thinking:  A common stereotype of the aged veterans of the TWBTS was of the deaf old man with a large tin horn which he would put up to his ear for people to shout into. 

I checked out a book of Veterans Humor once, and a lot of the cartoons used this as a basis for jokes.

I don't think going deaf in old age is considered so very common among men of today as it was back then.
