What is Army Counseling, why is it important, and what is the purpose?

Army counseling means a form of mentorship that is used to guide each Soldier. DA Form 4856 is the official form for counseling junior enlisted members. Army counseling is important because it allows the leader to inform Soldiers of important information, areas of improvement, and areas to sustain. The form also provides promotion board members with performance and potential assessments.
