You are correct. Requesting a reconsideration is probably the most important thing my VSO taught me. After almost thirty years of being "stuck" at 10%, in six months, I went from 10% to 50%, 60%, 90%, and about to be 100%.

Conrad, Mattoon, Rapp, Abramo, Mott, etc.....can't remember all the names. How the Nam Vets and many of you survived the pounding for so long is humbling. I was honored to chew some of the same ground as all you studs!

I have learned that its better to file a Notice of Disagreement(NOD) and submit new evidence than to appeal.

My appeal took almost 12 years. My NOD took 3. My problems was they lost my paperwork and then the original judge I had for my appeal died, assigned a new judge, back in line. I waited on a travel board for almost 7 years.
