What happens with a GOMAR?

When an Army General Officer (GO) want to formally reprimand someone, the GO will issue a memorandum of reprimand (“GOMOR” or sometimes “GOMAR”). The GO’s legal office prepares the reprimand based on a file of evidence related to the misconduct. The reprimand is then given to the Soldier, who has a chance to file a rebuttal.  What the Soldier puts in that rebuttal is critical because it is the Soldier’s only opportunity to communicate the other side of the story, as there is no right to a board or hearing.  The rebuttal is reviewed by the legal office and the GO, who decides what the “filing determination” will be. For information on how to respond to a GOMOR, please review this post with informational video. The GOMOR/GOMAR can be filed permanently in the Soldier’s file at HRC, or locally, or even rescinded completely (torn up).
