STAGE SETTING: THE MILITARY SITUATION
The papers presented at the workshop comprise parts II through VI. These chapters have undergone limited editorial change, have not been reviewed by an outside group, and represent the views of the individual authors. Selected questions and the speakers' responses are included to provide the flavor of the workshop discussion.
Part II provides an introduction to the workshop. Chapter 4 presents an overview and background of the basis for the Army's interest in nutrition and immune function. A detailed presentation of results of nutrition interventions on immune responses in soldiers participating in U.S. Ranger Training and Special Forces Assessment Schools is presented in Chapter 5, and Chapter 6 presents results of nutrition intervention studies during the Ranger Training Course at the Norwegian Military Academy.
