submit any such request or appeal to the approval authority that acted on the original
report. The request or appeal will be in letterform over the signature of the individual.
Appeals will be forwarded through channels to the General Court Martial authority
having jurisdiction over the command in which the loss occurred.
b. Unless good cause for a greater delay exists, appeals must be filed within two
years. Requests for reconsideration received at any headquarters or staff office will be
forwarded to the headquarters taking final action on the report. The responsible
headquarters may either sustain the action previously taken without reopening the
report or reopen the report. Appeals will be routed and reports reconsidered in the
same manner. In the event the responsible headquarters disallows the appeal, that
office will prepare a memorandum to the appeal authority, setting forth its basis for
disallowing the appeal. The action of the appeal authority is final and no further appeal
