Our mission is to optimize Soldier readiness and survivability through hearing conservation. Hearing is a 360 degree warning sense and is essential for communication and for detection of sound at a distance. The most potent and precious munition in the Army is the individual Soldier. Army Regulation 40-5 requires an Army Hearing Program. Department of the Army Pamphlet 40-501 provides guidance for implementation.
