Corrections and clarifications
¶ Clarification: The Nov. 7 story on new troop rotations into Iraq should have said that support units attached to parent units who are on a different rotation cycle will not have their time in Iraq shortened to match the parent cycle. Instead, the support units will remain in Iraq for a full year, shifting their support function to the replacement unit, Army Maj. Martha Brooks said.
¶ Correction: The same story also contained false information. The 1st Brigade of the 1st Infantry Division, from Fort Riley, Kan., deployed to Iraq in September and will be returning to the United States in September 2004, or one full year later, in accordance with the Army's "365 days boots on the ground" policy, Army officials said.
