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.
