What is a GOMOR?

A GOMOR, or General Officer Memorandum of Reprimand, is an administrative reprimand issued in the form of a memorandum. A GOMOR may be issued for any type of misconduct and may be issued in addition to any other punitive actions taken by the Chain of Command without creating any Double Jeopardy concerns. GOMORs may be filed in a Soldier’s local file or in a Soldier’s AMHRR. If placed in the Soldier’s local file, the GOMOR will remain in the Soldiers file at 3ID for 18 months, or until the Soldier changes duty locations, whichever comes first. If placed in the Soldiers AMHRR, the GOMOR will remain in the Soldiers permanent, military record.

Slow down: Changes to speeding violations

The commanding general recently authorized the Fort Stewart Military Police to issue DD Form 1408 for traffic violations when a Soldier is pulled over for speeding 10mph or over above the speed limit. The DD 1408 is effectively a military speeding ticket that allows a Soldier’s Brigade Commander to issue administrative reprimands, non-judicial punishment, suspension of on post driving privileges, corrective training, and/or other appropriate remedial measures. Master Sergeants and above caught driving 10mph or over the posted speed limit will have their misconduct addressed by the Commanding General in accordance Policy Letter #3.
