There is some issue with the graytags-request entries in
data/virtual-mailman. What are they?

Or, there is some conflict in Postfix regarding the graytags-request

If either lists.usafa-1965.org or usafa-1965.org is a local domain
(i.e. in Postfix mydestination) mail to that domain should work. If
they are both virtual-domains, the list's host_name should be in
POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS, and only that domain should be used for
list mail.
