NOTICE: Federal Circuit Local Rule 47.8(b) states that opinions and orders which are designated as not citable as precedent shall not be employed or cited as precedent.

PER CURIAM.

1

Appellant seeks review of the judgment of the United States Court of Veterans Appeals affirming the denial of a claim for service-connected disability. Appellant challenges only factual determinations or the application of a law or regulation to his claim, or raises a legal question that does not contest the validity of a statute or a regulation, or the interpretation of a constitutional or statutory provision or a regulation. No issue is raised which falls within the jurisdiction of this court under 38 U.S.C. §§ 7292(c), (d)(1)-(2). Accordingly, the appeal is dismissed. See Livingston v. Derwinski, 959 F.2d 224 (Fed.Cir.1992).
