In August of last year I received my very first DUI automatically I received a letter of reprimand, but the courts have reduced my DUI to a reckless driving. This year I am being considered for the board but also considered for QMP. How can I write a letter to the board expressing my apologies that will help me in my situation.

I received a GOMOR last october too drunk at a Brigade Ball

I received a GOMOR last october for getting too drunk at a Brigade Ball and send something inapropriate to a senior NCOs wife. I was allowed to finish my command and recieved a middle of the road OER. The CG did not initiate a show cause board.Since then I have completed ASAP, Marriage Counseling, attend AA and have not drank any alcohol since that dayThis year is my BZ look for Major in July so I expect a show cause board to be intiated.In January I underwent surgery on my left foot where they fused it together and was accepted into the MED board processes.I understand that a show cause board supercedes a MED Board. I was planning on submitting my REFRAD but my wife wanted me to MED Board. My question is, in your experience do I have a fighting chance to be able to MED board.I am an Army Infantry Captain with 13 years and 32 months of deployment time. I had a second command lined up and have good OERs. I am just curiuos on what to expect and ways to get ready to

Mr., First of all Semper Fi! I am asking this question on

Mr. Simmons,First of all Semper Fi! I am asking this question on behalf of my son that is now 9 days into terminal leave. He is an E-4 in the Army and will be completely separated (ETS) in mid-April. He received a GOMOR dated 22 Feb after finalizing all of the separation hurdles and clearing all of his "flags" for separation/sign-off. He currently has a DD214 (Honorable) and is in the civilian job hunt. Now, the back story - In October of 2015 he was detained for an alleged DUI on post. Within 12 hours, he was released to the custody of his battalion commander/SNCO (CAPT and First SGT). He did receive an Open Container citation which he paid within a couple of days -- NO other citations were noted or given. There was an internal memo that was retained with the MP's and stated the details of the alleged/possible implications of the aforementioned DUI charge(s). As I understand it, he does not have the right to appeal due to his rank however, I am curious if he has any recourse whatsoever to have this GOMOR filed at a local level vice his permanent record. He has no intentions of re-enlistment however, does have concerns of this affecting his civilian career. So, my ultimate questions are:What implications goes a GOMOR have in civil***** *****fe (Civil Service, etc.)?Outside of a Civil Service/Gvt Contractor career, should he have any other concerns?Thanks in advance!
