Initial Counseling PVT-SPC (2)
Initial Counseling

This is your initial counseling. This is an overview of what I expect from you and what you can expect from me.

o Performance - Ensure that you are always on time, do what you are told to do and perform all duties in a military manner. Also, I expect you to become knowledgeable in your MOS and strive to attain the next level.

o Appearance - Maintain your uniforms in accordance with AR 670-1 and _______________ Division Regulation XXX-X. Your uniform identifies you as a member of the US Army and the _________________ Division. Wear it with pride. Abide by Army hair and fingernail standards and grooming policies. Your boots should be IAW AR 670-1.

o Education - I encourage you to take college classes and Army correspondence courses along with any available military schooling. These will not only help you in your Army career, but also in your future should you decide not to stay Army.

o Physical Fitness - You need to ensure that you can pass a PT test at any time and also maintain the standards governed by AR 600-9.

o Military Courtesy - You need to show respect to your seniors, peers and subordinates alike. When speaking to NCOs, you need to be at the position of parade rest. Maintain a good positive military bearing at all times to include on and off duty. What you can expect from me is the following:

I will ensure that you do the above to the utmost of my ability.

I will provide you motivation, direction and training.

If any problems should arise in the future, I will assist you in solving them. I am here to help you in anyway possible
