INTRODUCTION

The Veteran served on active duty from July 1966 to July 1968.  This matter comes before the Board of Veterans' Appeals (Board) on appeal from a January 2016 rating decision from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Regional Office (RO).   

FINDING OF FACT

In August 2018, prior to the promulgation of a decision in the appeal, the Board received notification from the Veteran that a withdrawal of this appeal is requested.


CONCLUSION OF LAW

The criteria for withdrawal of an appeal by the appellant have been met.  38 U.S.C. § 7105(b)(2), (d)(5); 38 C.F.R. § 20.204.


REASONS AND BASES FOR FINDING AND CONCLUSION

The Board may dismiss any appeal which fails to allege specific error of fact or law in the determination being appealed.  38 U.S.C. § 7105.  An appeal may be withdrawn as to any or all issues involved in the appeal at any time before the Board promulgates a decision.  38 C.F.R. § 20.204.  Withdrawal may be made by the appellant or by his or her authorized representative.  38 C.F.R. § 20.204.  In the present case, the appellant has withdrawn this appeal and, hence, there remain no allegations of errors of fact or law for appellate consideration.  Accordingly, the Board does not have jurisdiction to review the appeal and it is dismissed.



ORDER

The appeal is dismissed.
