Today's military is shrinking in size, which means it is becoming harder and harder to get a promotion. An absolutely clean record will become even more of a necessity. One thing that could derail that is a General Officer Memorandum of Reprimand (GOMOR).
Issued by any general officer, a GOMOR has come to be known as a "career killer." GOMORs are usually issued by general officers due to an act of misconduct that pertains to your character.
They can be placed in your Military Personnel Records Jacket, also known as your local file. Even worse, they can be placed in your official military files, which means a promotions board will be able to see it.
