Abstract : The activities of the Food and Nutrition Board's Committee on Military Nutrition Research (CMNR) have been supported since 1986 by Grant No. DAMD17-86-G-6036 from the U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command. This report presents a summary of these activities over the grant period from September 30, 1986, through September 31, 1991, including the period covered by a six-month no-cost extension to March 31, 1992. 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 eight formal reports with recommendations to the Assistant Surgeon General since 1986 and has two major reports currently under preparation. These reports are summarized in the following activities report with synopses of additional topics for which reports were deferred pending completion of military research in progress. This activities report includes as appendixes the conclusions and recommendations from the eight reports and has been prepared in a fashion to allow rapid access to Committee recommendations on the topics covered over the time period.
