You cannot be ordered to sign a counseling statement. Signing a counseling statement is your decision and your decision alone. A leader that forces you to sign a document is giving an illegal order. The proper procedure is for the leader to simply insert Soldier refused to sign and if necessary request a witness to sign the counseling statement with a short statement that says something like: I observed SPC___ refuse to sign this counseling statement”.
