  1. Establish a procedure for evaluating the individual participants longitudinally to be able to compare such factors as body weight loss, percent body fat, and various immune responses at the time of reevaluating this training. Perhaps those individuals could be selected as participants who are continuing through the training again. This would provide the opportunity of testing them at the same stage of the training regimen as they were previously tested.

CONCLUSION

In conclusion the CMNR and their advisors found the questions raised by the Ranger nutritional assessment and intervention projects to be of great importance. Further studies offer both improved conduct of Ranger Training and may also be of more general clinical importance for the care of injured and critically ill patients. The Committee on Military Nutrition Research is pleased to provide these recommendations as part of its ongoing activities in assisting the Military Nutrition Division of USARIEM.
