Failed Record ACFT Counseling

SGT XXXXX, you are receiving this counseling for failing to pass the record ACFT conducted by XXXXX on 04 October 2022. The record ACFT was conducted on XXXXX grounds and complied with all administration standards as outlined in ATP 7-22.01, C2. You were made aware of the current ACFT standards six months ago following the publication of Army Directive 2022-05 (Army Combat Fitness Test). As a Soldier, you are expected to pass the ACFT at any given time.

SGT XXXXX, for your age group and gender the minimum standards are:

Max Deadlift (MDL): XXX

Standing Power Throw (SPT): X.X

Hand-release Push-up (HRP): XX

Sprint/Drag/Carry (SDC): X:XX

Plank (PLK): X:XX

Two-Mile Run (2MR): XX:XX

Your record ACFT results on 04 October 2022 were as follows:

MDL (weight/score): XXX/XX

SPT (distance/score): X.X/XX

HRP (reps/score): XX/XX

SDC (time/score): X:XX/XX

PLK (time/score): X:XX/XX

2MR (time/score): XX:XX/XX

SGT XXXXX, ATP 7-22.01, C2, Ch. 2-31 states, "...Soldiers must attain a score of at least 60 points on each event and an overall score of at least 360 points". By failing to achieve a score of at least 60 points in the SDC you are considered a test failure. As a result, you may be flagged and have all favorable actions suspended. Per Army Directive 2022-05, "Soldiers who fail a record ACFT will retest no less than 120 days and no more than 180 days from the test failure. If the commander and Soldier agree that sufficient reconditioning has occurred, the Soldier may retest in less than the prescribed time". Prior to your retest you will be enrolled in the XXXXX remedial PT program and given a diagnostic ACFT every 30 days until you pass a record ACFT or PCS, whichever comes first.

You are being counseled in accordance with AR 635-200, paragraph 1-16, for your conduct as set forth in Part Il above. Misconduct, inappropriate actions, or deficiencies in your performance may result in punitive action under the UCMJ and/or initiation of separation IAW AR 635-200. Separation action may result in your service being characterized as Honorable, General, or Under Other Than Honorable Conditions (UOTH). An Honorable Discharge entitles you to receive all discharge benefits. A General Discharge may result in substantial prejudice in civilian life and loss of certain benefits, such as civil service retirement credit and educational assistance. An UOTH Discharge could result in substantial prejudice in civilian life, and may result in the loss of most or all benefits as a veteran under both Federal and State laws. Some of the benefits you would not be eligible for with an UOTH discharge are payment for accrued leave, health benefits, civil service preference, reemployment rights, unemployment compensation and naturalization benefits. An involuntary separation might result in recoupment of unearned enlistment bonuses, a loss of G.I. Bill or VEAP educational benefits, and no separation pay. It is very difficult to upgrade a less than honorable discharge.

o I will recommend that Command initiate a Suspension of Favorable Personnel Action (Flag)

o SGT XXXXX will be enrolled in the SHF remedial PT program

o SGT XXXXX will improve his physical fitness with the goal of passing a record ACFT in 30 days
