Reprimand and Admonition Handbook Military Justice Section

Administrative reprimands and admonitions are management tools available to commanders, supervisors and other superiors to reprove and correct subordinates for their departure (on- or off-duty) from norms of performance, conduct, bearing, behavior or integrity. They should be used when it is determined that more formal action under Article 15, UCMJ, is not necessary. A “reprimand” is more severe than an “admonition” and carries a strong implication of official censure. An “admonition” is similar to a reprimand but carries a lesser degree of severity and censure. Both are intended as corrective and rehabilitative in nature rather than punitive. They are administered verbally or in writing, as deemed appropriate, to correct the identified deficiency.
