Project Overview

In recent years, military branches have faced an issue in the recruitment and retention of quality personnel, many not finishing initial entry training due to injuries or poor performance. As a result, there are extensive monetary and other factors related to costs associated with training military personnel who do not finish. The primary goal of the study is to examine the fitness, injuries, motivation, and resilience of military base trainees so that appropriate injury prevention strategies can be developed to help military personnel at risk for physical and psychological injuries.
