Top 5 Things YOU Need to Know About Appealing a Military Letter of Reprimand

This guide is for those members of the military who have received some sort of administrative reprimand from a General or Flag Officer and want to have it permanently removed (or hidden) from their official military (or NOAA or Public Health Service) personnel file.

It is absolutely crucial that you have help preparing a letter of reprimand or an HQ-level personnel request. As a member of the Armed Forces you are afforded an opportunity to consult, for free, with military legal assistance attorneys. While these attorneys are extraordinarily competent, they are also extraordinarily overworked. As a result, they have a different view of what a “good” request is required or should look like. Their standard is “legally sufficient” not “the best damn thing you can produce.” I recommend you seek the best civilian counsel you can afford to increase your chances of success at these types of Boards.
