Each branch of military service has various forms of quality force management tools such as counseling, admonishment, and reprimands.
Officially, these management tools are designed to improve, correct, and instruct those service members that depart from standards of performance, conduct, bearing, and integrity and whose actions degrade the individual and unit’s mission. While these tools are not supposed to be punitive, receiving negative administrative paperwork can have lasting career consequences.
In many instances, receiving negative administrative paperwork will have second, third, and fourth-order consequences on your career.
For example, a Letter of Reprimand can be used as a basis to initiate an involuntary discharge proceeding. Furthermore, a Letter of Reprimand will most likely cause the service member to receive an undesirable performance report, which will affect the service member’s opportunity for promotion. The good news is that a service member has a right to respond to the allegations in the administrative paperwork.
