Correction and Clarification
The article, Conquering the Seventh Continent, on page 18 of the January 2016 WOW used an incorrect name for the inflatable boats taken from ship to shore in Antarctica. Their correct name is Zodiacs.
Also the participation table for the Thanksgiving Food Drive on page 77 of January’s edition incorrectly listed Greensprings village as having 114 homes with a participation rate of 20.2 percent. Greensprings, however, has only 60 homes, meaning its correct participation rate for the Thanksgiving Food Drive was 38.3 percent. WOW thanks Greensprings for the great showing!
WOW regrets the errors.
In the introduction to the June 2013 WOW in the World feature Green Beret Lieutenant Colonel Tim Creighton was incorrectly identified as having served a decade in the Marines. Twenty-six year veteran Creighton, however, has served approximately ten years in Infantry and 16 years as a Green Beret. WOW regrets the error.
