As a part of the U. S. Armed Forces anthropometric surveys of 1966, a sample of 6682 Army men was measured, including basic trainees, infantrymen, armored crewmen, and aviation personnel. Seventy body measurements were taken on each man. The anthropometric data from this survey are presented and discussed. These new data represent the first major updating of body size information on U. S. Army personnel since the Army anthropometric survey of 1946. Changes in the body size of Army men between 1946 and 1966 are discussed and the Army data are compared with anthropometric data from other services.
