Soldier in unit, has history of disregards to authority figures, recently became my soldier.
She had an appointment at a specific time today and while the rest of the unit was collectively busy accomplishing a task, she left. I have seen her do this while under other NCO's but this is her first infraction with me. How do I go about counseling her? I want to nip this in the bud before it sets a precedent. I had spoken to her about maybe being released early in order to get her things in order for said appointment, but she left of her own volition. What articles did she violate and in your opinion, what kind of corrective training is appropriate?
*she left without informing me.
*she left hours prior to her appointment.
*I called her 3 times within the hour of her leaving and she did not answer.
