Should I document that my Soldier does not plan on Reenlisting?

Hello Top. Got a quick question. So one of my NCOs are in their reenlist net window - his ETS is FEB 2015. And he doesn't plan on reenlisting. Should I document this on 4856? If so what verbiage would be appropriate? Thanks in advance!

You should absolutely document the session.  Here is a short sample to get you started:

________{insert Rank/Name}, on ________{insert date}, we discussed your potential reenlistment.  Your current ETS date is:___________{insert date}, your current reenlistment date closes
on or about ________{insert date}.  Should you choose not to reenlist within your reenlistment window which ends on or about ________{insert date}. There is very little chance you will be allowed to reenlist
as the Army is changing reenlistment requirements to meet drawndown requirements.________{insert date}.

Should you choose not to reenlist I would encourage you to aggressively prepare and execute a plan of action that allows you to take maximum advantage to any and all Army programs that can assist you
in the transition process.
