Update on U.S. Army Recruiting Battalion story

In the August 6 issue of this paper in a piece on the US Army Recruiting Battalion at Fort Hamilton Army Base, incoming Lt. Col. Omuso D. George was incorrectly identified as Amuso;

Sgt. 1st Class Constance Campbell was incorrectly identified as Officer Campbell;

Outgoing Lt. Col. Paul J. Cook received a service medal, not a pin;

The battalion is one of the largest army recruiting, not draft, units in the country;

And the ceremony was erroneously referred to as a changing of the guard, whereas it was a changing of command.

We regret the errors.
