General Counseling Information
We do not accept submissions of counseling statements that were obviously copied and pasted off a Soldier counseling statement. We will also not accept sample counseling statements that list information that could lead one to believe that it is from a certain unit or in any way, be tracked back to a Soldier. When submitting a counseling, please make reference to SOLDIER, not an actual or fake name. Do not reference any other personnel by name, instead us NCO, Rank or Position.
Again, we welcome counseling samples. Everyone may need a little help at some point and your submission could help out a fellow leader that may be stumped for ideas.
