  • In accordance with NGR 600-200, the command must provide complete justification and documentation to support the reduction action.  However, an unexcused absence from scheduled training, weather one UTA or one MUTA, should not normally itself be the sole basis to charge a soldier with inefficiency to the degree that reduction is warranted.
