As a SPC I was privileged to utilize my CO school incentive program. I would report for accountability formation and then be sent on my way to classes. I now have my stripes, I now report to work for half-day schedule, then attend my classes. I'm still a full time student but now I have soldiers who I am responsible for. One of my soldiers is reporting to the SOM board next week. I haven't done a single counseling (to include my initial) to any of my soldiers. I am currently the SQD LDR until the official SQD LDR and TEAM LDR return from school. My unit is pretty much throwing me to the wolves, not to mention I still have green Class A's. So my issues are:
1. Should I even report with my soldier to the SOM board knowing I'll give the SM a bad look from the gate wearing greens?
2. Am I responsible for counseling soldiers even if I'm not assigned the role of SQD LDR?
3. If I am held accountable to give counselings where can I go to reference some good examples. I'll need this in the future regardless.
