Recruits at Marine Corps Recruit Depot MCRD San Diego are at risk for training- related musculoskeletal injuries due to their relatively low baseline fitness levels and the sudden increase in vigorous physical activity associated with boot camp training. The annual fiscal and operational costs of recruit musculoskeletal injuries at MCRD San Diego were estimated at 16.5 million and 53,000 lost training days. Stress fractures were the single most costly injury, with an estimated annual cost in excess of 5 million.
