PART I Overview PART ~ CONSISTS OF TWO CHAPTERS Chapter 1 provides the background for the report. It describes the task as presented to the Committee on Mili- tary Nutrition Research (CMNR) by the Department of Defense through the U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command, Frederick, Maryland and its Grant Officer Representative from the Military Nutrition Division, U.S. Army Institute for Environmental Medicine (USARIEM). In develop- ing the plans for the workshop and report, a task force of the CMNR, working with their military liaison, developed a specific set of questions on which the workshop and report are based. These questions are listed in Chapter 1 together with: an overview of the relevant areas of concern, the operational definitions of the pertinent terminology, a review of current military standards as they relate to accession and retention of personnel, and a summary of the committee's interpretation of the current scientific knowledge in these areas. Chapter 2 presents the committee's findings and conclusions. Chapter 2 also includes specific and general recommendations developed by the CMNR in response to the set of questions, presented in Chapter 1, that defined their task as a committee. 1
