REASONS AND BASES FOR FINDING AND CONCLUSIONS
The Veteran had active military service from September 1972 to September 1974.
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.  A substantive appeal may be withdrawn in writing at any time before the Board promulgates a decision.  38 C.F.R. § 20.202.  Withdrawal may be made by the appellant or by his authorized representative.  38 C.F.R. § 20.204.  The appellant has withdrawn all issues on appeal; hence, there remain no allegations of errors of fact or law for 
 
appellate consideration.  Accordingly, the Board does not have jurisdiction to review these issues and the appeal is dismissed.
