What You Need to Know

A letter of reprimand (LOR) is an administrative censure given to a Soldier for a failure to comply with established standards. A LOR may be filed in either the local file, officially known as your Military Personnel Record Jacket (MPRJ), or the Army Military Human Resource Record (AMHRR) (formerly the OMPF). Letters filed locally may remain for up to eighteen months or until you are reassigned to a new general court-martial jurisdiction, whichever is sooner. A reprimand filed in a Soldier’s AMHRR, regardless of the issuing authority, can only be filed upon the order of a general officer, or by direction of an officer having general court-martial jurisdiction over the Soldier. Letters filed in your AMHRR are permanently placed in the performance section and will likely adversely affect your military career in the future.

What You Can Do

When you receive an LOR, you are entitled to a reasonable time (usually seven days) to submit a written response. Your written response becomes a part of the official record, so it is important that you submit a professional, respectful, and persuasive response.
