Counseling/Failure to Shave

PART II - BACKGROUND INFORMATION

  Purpose of Counseling


  DISCUSS SUBSTANDARD BEHAVIOR, "FAILURE TO SHAVE” BEFORE FIRST FORMATION
AR 670-1: 3-2.a.(2)(b) Facial hair. Males will keep their face clean-shaven when in uniform, or in civilian clothes on duty.


PART III - SUMMARY OF COUNSELING
Complete this section during or immediately subsequent to counseling.


YOU ARE BEING COUNSELED FOR FAILURE TO SHAVE BEFORE THE FIRST FORMATION OF THE DAY. THIS BEHAVIOR IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. I HAD TO CORRECT YOU AND THIS SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN. YOU ARE A NON-COMMISSIONED OFFICER. THE FACT THAT YOU DID NOT SHAVE IS IRRESPONSIBLE. WHEN THE PARATROOPERS TO YOUR LEFT LOOK AT YOU AND SEE YOU NOT DOING THE RIGHT THING, THEY THINK WHY SHOULD THEY DO THE RIGHT THING IF THEIR NCO IS NOT. HOW CAN YOU LEAD FROM THE FRONT IF YOU ARE NOT DOING THE RIGHT THING? IN THE POSITION YOU ARE IN YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO MAKE THESE KINDS OF MISTAKES. YOU ARE CONSTANTLY BEING WATCHED NOT ONLY BY THE PARATROOPERS BELOW YOU BUT ALSO BY YOUR LEADERSHIP. YOU NEED TO STEP BACK AND TAKE A LONG HARD LOOK AT YOURSELF AND YOUR CONDUCT AND DO SOME SELF-ADJUSTING. I DO NOT SEE THIS BEING A PROBLEM IN THE FUTURE. AIRBORNE!!!!






This counseling statement has been furnished to you, not as a punitive measure under the provisions of article 15, UCMJ, but as an administrative measure to stress that continued behavior of the same or a similar nature may result in initiation of action separating you from the U.S. Army under the provisions of Chapter (5) (8) (11) (13) (14) , AR 635-200. Such action may result in either an Honorable Discharge, General Discharge, or an Other Than Honorable (OTH) Discharge. If you receive a General or an OTH Discharge, this could result in the possible loss of some or all Veterans Benefits and substantial prejudice in obtaining civilian employment. In addition, if you have contributed money to the Montgomery G.I. Bill and you are released from active duty with a less than Honorable Discharge, you will not be eligible to receive money for educational purposes and any money already contributed for educational purposes is nonrefundable and may be forfeited.


OTHER INSTRUCTIONS
This form will be destroyed upon: reassignment (other than rehabilitative transfers), separation at ETS, or upon retirement. For separation requirements and notification of loss of benefits/consequences see local directives and AR 635-200.
