Re: U.S. Post Office's "standard war procedures." Although I do not know precisely what these entail, our main post offices have "boarded up" all the inside mail slots/drops so that everything must be deposited in the mailboxes outside; or, if a local postmark is wanted/needed, one must take it to the counter to have it done. The sign over the inside mail slots reflects only: "Until further notice..." or "For the time being these are no longer in service. Customers must use the outside mail drops...etc." No furhter details are provided. Since this happened soon after Jan. 16th, I surmised it was SOP (standard operating procedure) to safeguard against postal bombs. Where such "standard war procedures" regarding the U.S. Postal Service might be found, I don't know, except I'm sure the Government Documents librarians might clue us all in on where such information could be found!
