Key Points of Discussion:

In the United States Military, Failure to report is a crime and it is unacceptable behavior that will not be tolerated. If found
guilty of this offense, the maximum punishment is ______________________. This unit cannot function properly when it's
members become undependable and place undue hardship on the rest of the unit members. In committing such
misconduct you have brought discredit upon The United States Army, this Unit, and Yourself. (I am recommending that the
commander impose nonjudicial punishment for your misconduct) OR (You will receive corrective training as outlined in the
plan of action).

You are here by notified that if this type of conduct continues, actions may be initiated under the Uniform Code of Military
Justice to separate you from the Army prior to your scheduled ETS Date IAW AR 635-200.  If you are involuntary
separated, you could receive an Honorable Discharge, a General (Under Honorable Conditions) Discharge, or a Under
Other Than Honorable Conditions Discharge. If you receive a discharge Under Other Than Honorable Conditions, you will
be ineligible for reenlistment and for most benefits, including payments of accrued leave, transitional benefits, the
Montgomery GI Bill, VA benefits, and You may also face difficulty in obtaining civilian employment.   
                                                                                  OTHER INSTRUCTIONS

Use this Counseling Example when your Soldier is late for duty or misses formation. As a supervisor you are responsible for the accountability
of your Soldiers and should take immediate action by counseling the Soldier on the first minor offence. You may recommend punishment under
the UCMJ depending on the severity of the offence or if your Soldier is Absent Without Leave AWOL for an unreasonable length of time either
way you must report up the Chain of Command.
