Summary

The activities of the Food and Nutrition Board's Committee on Military Nutrition Research (CMNR) have been supported since 1992 by Grant No. DAMD17-92-J-2003 from the U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command. This report presents a summary of these activities for the grant period from April 1, 1992, through May 30, 1994, including the period covered by a six-month no-cost extension to November 30, 1994. During this grant period the CMNR has met from three to six times each year in response to issues that are brought to the Committee through the Military Nutrition Division of the U.S. Army Institute of Environmental Medicine (USARIEM) at Natick, Massachusetts. The CMNR has submitted seven formal reports with recommendations to the Assistant Surgeon General since April, 1992 and has two workshop reports and a letter report currently under preparation. These reports are summarized in the following activity report with synopses of additional topics for which reports were deferred pending completion of military research in progress. This activity report includes as appendixes the conclusions and recommendations from the seven reports and has been prepared in a fashion to allow rapid access to Committee recommendations on the topics covered over the time period.
