Director: TED | Producer: TED
Focus Years: 2012 | Country: United States
Keith Nolan always wanted to join the United States military but heâ€™s deaf, an automatic disqualification according to military rules. In this talk, he describes his fight to fight for his country. In American Sign Language, with real time translation. Filmed at TEDxIslay.
Keith Nolan doesn't believe his deafness should be a barrier to serving his country and is making the case for increasing the role of citizens with disabilities in the military.
