    Can a soldier pull duty back to back? Duty on Monday and then again on Wednesday that same week?

      As long as the 1SG or whomever is doing the DA Form 6 is doing so in accordance with AR 220-45, then yes, the same Soldier can be required to pull duty on Monday, Tuesday off, and duty again on Wednesday with Thursday off. I actually have had this happen to me but I pulled duty on a Sunday, then Tuesday, then Thursday. I hope this helps.

    Is there any rules against pulling staff duty every weekend?

    I know a soldier who has just been assigned duty Friday to guard equipment in the field, after doing CQ this past Monday and having CQ again this coming up Sunday. So this Soldier would have had duties on Monday, Friday and Sunday of the same week. This can’t be right and it happens often in my current unit.

      In this situation there should be separate rosters. 1 for guard duty, 1 for weekday CQ, and 1 for weekend CQ. Therefore it is possible for a Soldier to have duty on each duty roster in a relatively short period of time. Soldiers are allowed to review the duty roster if they believe there is a mistake. See AR 220-45. You may also just want to sit down and ask the 1SG to educate you on the duty roster process. Usually they are very open and willingly to walk you through the process and let you review the roster.
      Hope this Helps!

    ? As the NCOIC of G-3, is there a regulation that states that position is exempt from pulling duty?

    • Mark Gerecht

      Typically no. Exemptions are usually done by local policy.

    I have a question. My 1sg purchased a spreadsheet online that once he inputs the names for duty it just spits out whatever names it feels for duty and that’s what he uses to post our company CQ for the month. I asked him does he use the DA 6 he said NO he thinks this is better for us in which its not because I have had duty 4 times each month for the past three months! Now my question is, isn’t the only method authorized to use is the DA 6? Where do I find that in the regulation? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

      Leah,
      AR 220-45 governs the DA FORM 6 and Duty Roster process. I know of nothing that prevents the use of a software program as long as it follows the rules contained in the regulation. You have the right to look at the roster and to question what you believe to be mistakes. If you decide to discuss the issue with the 1SG I would encourage you to approach it from an educational approach. Meaning ask the 1SG teach you and show you the ins and outs of the roster process. If there is a mistake on the Duty Roster I am sure he will correct it. Duty Rosters can be a pain in the butt especially with a large unit. I would encourage you to read the regulation before you approach the 1SG. Hope this helps.
