The NAD strongly supports the efforts of Keith Nolan and others to ensure that deaf and hard of hearing people have the opportunity to serve our country in uniform. We, like many of our members, were deeply inspired by Keith Nolan’s 2011 TedxIslay conference speech, which has over 150 thousand views on YouTube. The NAD has been working closely with Mr. Nolan over the past three years gathering support in Congress. The NAD strongly supports S.1864 and H.R. 5296.
