AND CERTIFIES ACHIEVEMENT OF CAREER READINESS STANDARDS (CRS).  THIS CHECKLIST 
MUST BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO SERVICE MEMBER'S SEPARATION, CERTIFIED BY 
TRANSITION COUNSELOR, APPROVED BY SERVICE MEMBER'S COMMANDER OR DESIGNATED 
REPRESENTATIVE AND FILED IN MEMBER'S SERVICE RECORD.  THE FORM IS AVAILABLE AT
