I'm senior Rating a trooper who came to our unit because he was supposed to PCS
to Kuwait but injured his back on PCS leave and was reassigned to us.
Soldier also experienced divorce during this time- spouse did not make things easy on him.
He hasn't "worked" more than 3-4 full days since July. He has been ACAPing and is headed to the WTU next week and it is likely he will be chaptered out. Change Of Rater is due now.
He has success bullets down the back, with only one bullet comment "exempt from APFT due to permanent profile, is unable to perform assigned duties and is medically non-deployabl"
o fully capable
3/3 with the usual statements in the senior rater block.
QUESTION IS THIS:
Is it 'proper' or necessary to add in SR comments,
"Demonstrated professionalism despite personal challenges"
Although the trooper has missed a LOT of work, he has done well in not complaining or grumbling in the office- he still is Soldiering.
Be Proud of what you do- and do it Well! ~me
