Release from Army Body Composition Program

PFC xxxx, you are receiving this counseling in order to recognize your release from the Army Body Composition Program. You spent significant amounts of your own personal time at the gym, participated daily in remedial PT, and stayed motivated during unit PT in order to accomplish this objective. I'd like to say congratulations and that I greatly appreciate your exemplary, outstanding performance and dedication to your goal. Excellent job and keep up the good work! I know that it is quite discouraging to be on the program and what it can do to your overall self esteem. I'm so proud that you were able to overcome all of this by yourself. Your actions reflect good credit upon you, your unit, and the United States Army!
