Volume 24, Number 3
For the first time in more than two decades, Dawn Patrol fans can read Volume I of the Indy Squadron Dispatch in its entirety.
As far as Dawn Patrol goes, this is actually pretty special. The first volume of the Dispatch is a time capsule that embodies everything and everyone who helped make the Indy Squadron a reality nearly a quarter century ago.
Issue No. 1, dated July 28, 1989, was little more than an announcement of the next gaming day. Issues 2 and 3 still referred to the organization by its full name, the "Indianapolis Squadron," although that name is never used today. Issue No. 4 is the first to ever be identified as the "official newsletter," and the first time the publication used its longstanding name, the "Dispatch."
Volume 24, Number 2

Volume 24, Number 1
After nearly ten years on the old Web.com platform, the Indy Squadron Dispatch now has a new home on the web.
Some of the changes that readers will notice include fewer total pages on the new site. This is because the new site has a wider presentation than the old site, allowing more content to be placed on each page.
The new "Downloads" page is a better way to archive old issues of ISD and make data available to readers (such as Indy's house rules). The archiving of all known issues of ISD in digital form is a massive project that will hopefully come to fruition on this new site so that everyone can download the entire history of the Indy Squadron quickly and conveniently. It also better preserves the squadron's heritage by committing it to a digital format. The entire first decade of ISD exists only on paper at this point, but we are working on transferring all of the early paper issues into PDF format for preservation.
The menu links to the forum and Indy Squadron TV are direct and now require only one click. Also note the return of our original Indy Squadron logo created by Brian Halberstadt more than a decade ago.
Future issues of the Dispatch will appear in blog format to make more data available to the reader with less scrolling and searching.
