    Skirmish Line published?

    Not pushing

    Curious if recent edition of the SL were distributed via mail?

    If so son and I haven't received.

    Pls advise at your convenience.

    Skirmish line

    Rob the Skirmish Line went out a couple weeks ago. If you didn't receive one let the Executive Secretary (Judy Stoneburner) know. I believe she may also have replacement copies in her office at the Nationals.

    Thx Don,

    This is becoming an all-too-frequent occurrence.

    Hate to sound like a conspiracy nut, but I have a strong inkling that someone/some folks who handle our mail in Manassas/Prince William County are taking exception to our publication, and making them "disappear"...

    The Lion's Share of my & my son's SL's are from Judy's office...

    We do "luck out" and get the magazine from time to time in the mail. We received the previous installment, which was sent in clear plastic protective covers.

    Looks like I'll be getting my SL's after the fact - again.

    If memory serves right, I'm not the only skirmisher experiencing this dilemma.

    Well I've given up all hope in getting our latest SL via mail.

    Had to run over the Secretary's Office while down on the line, and pick up what was due. Was nice seeing Judy (as always) just wish it was under better circumstances...

    Fortune smiled upon us yesterday - our SL's arrived in the mail, intact as well! Hopefully our luck will hold out for the next installment...


    Great edition - VERY well done. Kudos to all parties involved!!

    Sorry, but IF they went out in May, as the second post seems to indicate and Lou got his last week, that's two MONTHS. Mine is still not here in S Florida.

    Not a good way to impress new members.

    I have some experience with mailing services and have seen all sorts of questionable performance. Users of these services often have an arrangement with a small sample that reports when theirs arrived. Services should be able to provide USPS receipts for the bags, by zip/area. Entire bags full have "found" on loading carts in far corners of USPS facilities.

    "Inspect what you expect."

    I will signal when mine arrives.

    I the meantime perhaps the leadership could share what they know about this.

    Very respectfully,
    Kevin Tinny
