(2) A 6105 counseling entry on the Marine's SRB/OQR's Page 11 will be administered at this time (fourth month) for failure to make satisfactory progress. See paragraph 6206 in MCO P1900.16F.

Counseling pursuant to paragraph 6105 of reference (h) for Marines not making significant progress while on their first assignment or the extension to their first assignment to the BCP will occur after the initial 60-day probation period and, at a minimum, at the fourth month of the BCP assignment when the Marine is reevaluated by the MO and diagnosed as not having an underlying cause or disease. Subparagraph (2) provides the recommended standard language for this counseling.

(1) "Counseled this date concerning your extension on the Marine Corps BCP. You have made reasonable progress but have failed to reach your required body composition while on your first assignment to this Program. Therefore, you have been granted a one-time extension of 6 months to meet the body composition standards set forth in MCO P6100.12. You are advised that failure to take corrective action and meet your body composition standards or weight/

body fat reduction goals, as prescribed by the medical officer, while on this 6 month extension will result in administrative separation from the USMC for either weight control failure or unsatisfactory performance per paragraphs 6206 and 6215 of MCO P1900.16E. Specific recommendations for corrective action are: Meet your weight/body fat reduction goals by losing the prescribed __ lbs and __ percent body fat per month for 6 months and actively participate in your diet and exercise program. Assistance is available through your chain of command. I was advised that within 5 working days after acknowledgment of this entry a written rebuttal could be submitted and that such a rebuttal will be filed on the document side of my SRB/OQR. I choose (to)(not to) make such a statement."
