Can a commander flag his senior NCOs for forgetting a PT test?

I forgot to take my PT test. There were a million more important things happening at the unit. Next thing I know I am flagged with no warning. Can the commander do that?

The comprehensive guide to the Military Decision Making Process (MDMP)

Yes they can.  According to AR 350-1:

“Soldiers who fail a record APFT for the first time or fail to take a record APFT within the required period will be flagged in accordance with AR 600–8–2.”
