Purpose of Counseling

Failure to shave

Summary of Counseling

IAW AR 670-1 3-2 para 2(b) "Facial hair. Males will keep their face clean-shaven when in uniform, or in civilian clothes on duty."

Basic hygiene is taught to new Soldiers entering the U.S. Army and is part of the foundation of being a Soldier.

You have been corrected several times by (insert name/s) over the past 30 days for not shaving.

Adherence to basic standards of hygiene should not be an issue for a Specialist, especially a Specialist that is promotable.

Failure to adhere to this basic requirement as a promotable Specialist causes the Command Team to question your ability to serve as a Noncommissioned Officer that will enforce the standard or lead troops while embodying the Army Core Values. I know you know the standard. Uphold it.

Plan of Action

You must arrive at work clean shaven every day. Failure to meet this standard will affect your promotion and result in more serious consequences.
