Do I have to counsel when a Soldier declines promotion?

One of my Soldiers just declined promotion. I don't know how to handle this. Do I have to counsel him?

Yes, the Soldier should be counseled IAW AR 600-8-19.

When a Soldier declines promotion consideration, it is essential that the Soldier’s immediate supervisor and the CDR determine the reason for the declination and provide adequate counseling.
