Battlefield Deception Guide - From Alexander the Great to Norman Schwarzkopf

Senior Raters are currently are not required to counsel the Soldiers for the specific purposes of a NCOER.  However there may be times when you believe it important to counsel the Soldier and that would be appropriate.  Now AR 623-3 paragraph 2-15 currently as of 2013 requires the Senior Rater to:

1. Are required to provide the rated Soldier with a copy of their support form and/or -1

2. Are required to review and initial the DA Form 2166-8-1 at the begining of rating period.  This is then returned to the rater and the rated Soldier is given a copy.
