Counselings are a critical aspect to setting expectations as leaders and also helping soldiers correct when performance slips. If you ever need to complete a counseling use the tabs below. The first one helps you complete a generic DA4856 and allows both parties to digitally sign it on a phone or computer. The other tabs help you quickly fill out common counselings, such as APFT failures. More will be added over time.
Use the form below to create a DA4856. If the soldier is present, you can all sign on the computer of phone you have the form open on.
