¶ A Jan. 10 story about a collision between a U.S. submarine and a Japanese tanker misspelled the name of the USS Greeneville.

¶ In a Jan. 10 story about a soldier charged with killing two superior officers in Iraq, The Associated Press erroneously reported his rank. Alberto B. Martinez is a staff sergeant, not a sergeant.

Clarification¶ A Jan. 9 story on the use of Value-Added Tax forms in Europe inaccurately gave the impression that the form could be used for tax relief on household utility bills. Tax relief on utilities is possible for troops living in Germany through the Utility Tax Avoidance Program, which requires a $77 fee to enter. Servicemembers cannot use VAT forms for this purpose.
