    Im a PFC in the army also . I dont think you can give a "Negative council statement" to a SSG, but if you are having problems with that NCO. You should go through your chain of command and use tact when your speaking. You will get better results if you do that , then if you jump your CoC, and if you do that you would also get into some trouble yourself.

    No, you don't have the authority to issue your squad leader a negative counciling statement. You can if you like make a complaint to the Platoon Leader or the Unit Commander, perhaps if they feel your complaint is a valid issue one of them may give the Staff Sergeant a negative counciling statement

    Familiarize yourself with the Army Regs (they are all online). If said SSG repeatedly fails to follow a particular reg (I am assuming this is something other than a personality conflict), document his/her infractions and bring to them to the attention of your platoon sergeant or first sergeant.

    If the command does not address a serious matter (e.g. sexual harassment) contact your Inspector General's office or your sergeant major...but, as said above, you'd better be able to prove you are right and went to your command first. CYA: Cover Your ***...because you better bet the command will.

    After I got off active duty, I spent some time in the reserve and it took an anonymous email campaign to the division sergeant major to get all NCOs and officers to have to take legitimate PT tests -- some hadn't really passed one since Daddy Bush's administration. Things changed...but this is the exception not the rule.

    What's a council statement? I have been out of the military over 30 years, never remember anything like that!

    None. Higher grades counsel (not council) lower grades, not the other way around. Hopefully they learn how to spell "counsel" before attempting to actually counsel someone.

    If you think you have something on your SSG, go to that NCO's superior and state your case. You'd better be right.

    That is one of the dumbest thing I have ever heard a Private say...No, you can not, and if they somehow find out about this they can recommend you for an Article 15..you get negative counselings for a reason...not meeting the standard...do yourself a favor and try to meet the standard, it only makes your life harder...do you know how many negative counselings it takes to get you a Summarized AR 15? Three...remember that...
