Must I include DUI on a Soldier’s NCOER?

Should I mention a DUI offense on my Soldier's NCOER?

If an individual receives a DUI, it should be mentioned specifically on his or her NCOER. You may not mention disciplinary action such as an Article 15 or a Letter of Reprimand; you should, however, mention the offense that led to the disciplinary action.

Consider using something similar to one of these example bullets:

  • Used poor judgment by operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol
  • Apprehended for driving with a blood alcohol content of 1.5 (.07 above the legal limit)
