They test you for hearing loss at the indoctrination center. A sound proof booth that relays beep sounds through ear phones and you respond. I guess it depends on the severity of loss. definitely too much loss is sufficient grounds for disqualification.

the vision would have little to no affect on combat ability, but to the hearing issues I doubt you'd be permitted to fight or be in a combat zone because you might not hear orders or warnings.

You are 15, your life goal probably will change! But there is a possibility that you will not be allowed! But if that is your dream ask your doctor about it and research it. You never know!
