This question was brought to me recently. A concerned peer is just now finding out about the NCOER appeal process. Their concern is the counseling dates were falsified giving the individual no time to rehabilitate from a 4/4 rating. Also, to clarify it's not just the counseling dates in question. What is the level of proof needed etc.? I personally have not dealt with this type of situation, but want to help them out the best I can without just sending them to the HRC website.

I'm reading this NCOER and I'm thinking, first of all, who the hell wrote this garbage? There were only 2 bullets half the time and most if not all were very vague. If I ever even thought about writing an NCOER like this, it wouldn't make it past the first-line supervisor's desk before it got kicked back to me. Second, there were points about the NCO being disrespectful and leaving a weapon unsecured, among others. If I were handling the appeal, I'd ask to see any and all paperwork written beforehand for said infractions. Also, I'd want to see all quarterly counselings. Lack thereof should set off alarm bells if you ask me.
To say I'm floored by what I just read would be a gross understatement. I've written some rough but deserved NCOERs in my time but even then, they carried the weight of truth. That one looks like it was written on the way to S-1 for final processing. If you're looking to put a substandard NCOER to paper... Qualify and Quantify, the same as you would a 1/1, Among the Best. "I will be fair and impartial..."
