Abstract:

This thesis outlines the implementation of the United States Special Operations Command THOR3 Tactical Human Optimization, Rapid Rehabilitation and Reconditioning Program into the Special Operations SOF community. This study returns to basics by focusing on the irreplaceable human element of SOF operations and identifies specific steps to prepare the human weapons system for the variety of SOF challenges it faces. Specifically, the study analyzed program design considerations and methods to better educate, train, and monitor SOF Soldier physical development and, when required, to recondition and rehabilitate SOF individuals back to full operational status after an injury.
