Mr., I am an Army Major and assess that my battalion

Customer Question

Mr. Simmons,
Hello, I am an Army Major and assess that my battalion commander and rater has never given me the opportunity to succeed while under his command. I commanded a company for a year and he has stated several times that I will get a “bad” OER due to his perception of my performance.
I assess that he has favorites in the battalion and others who he does not care for or tries to hurt their careers.
I know of 4 cases of individuals who have committed offenses and to my understanding have not received punishment. I received initial counseling and 2 negative counseling but never a performance oriented counseling. I would like to further discuss in detail what steps can I take with the evidence that I have to defend myself in the event that he writes me a “bad” OER. Thank you
