¶ A Thursday story about the civil affairs mission ending in the Philippines contained inaccurate information. The Armed Forces on the Philippines supported the civil affairs groups but without U.S. force protection. And Maj.

¶ A Wednesday story about construction at Yokota Air Base, Japan, was erroneous. Drivers will not be allowed to make right-hand turns while exiting either the West Gate or the Terminal Gate, 24 hours a day. The north lane is slated to reopen Jan. 17 at both the west and terminal gates, Raul Visaya, 374th Civil Engineer Squadron civil design chief, has said. The south lanes of both gates then will close from Jan. 17 until Feb. 29, he has said.
