I have never heard of an NCO being Relieved for Cause as a result of the Army Body Composition Program, unless that individual was in a Commander position or a CSM/1SG position. These positions are specifically addressed in the regulation. It may be possible for the Command to direct a relief for lower level leadership positions, but I believe to do so and be legally sufficient, the Command would need a legal opinion from the local JAG office. In your case, you state there may be a medical issue involved, and it may be related to a recent pregnancy. Recent revisions to AR 600-9 specifically address pregnancy and medical conditions. I would recommend you make an appointment with your local JAG to determine if proper procedures were followed and also determine if there was a violation of any protected status under AR 600-9 or federal law. You can request that the JAG give you a legal opinion concerning your case.
NCOER part IV- HT/WT—
The rater will comment on a “NO” entry, indicating noncompliance with the standards of AR 600–9, in part IV, block c. These comments should indicate the reason for noncompliance; medical conditions may be cited for noncompliance, however, the “NO “entry is still required because medical waivers to weight control standards are not permitted for evaluation report purposes. The progress or lack of progress in a weight control program will be indicated.–For pregnant NCOs, the entire entry is left blank. The rater will enter the following statement: “Exempt from weight control standards of AR 600–9.” Note. When using the Wizard application associated with the electronic form within the “My Forms” Portal on AKO, the APFT and height and weight statement will be combined.
