Army Counseling Examples

In the Army, counseling is an almost daily requirement. Whether it's meant to guide a Soldier's growth, document career milestones, or correct improper behavior, it can be a challenge to find the words to adequately describe a Soldier's performance and potential.

In order to make finding the counseling example you need easier, counseling examples are now organized into the three broad types of counseling: Performance Counseling, Event-Oriented Counseling, and Professional Growth.
