Army Ranger course error
A story in Thursday’s edition about Kristen Griest of Orange passing the Army Ranger course incorrectly stated how many tries it took she and Shaye Haver to pass the course. They failed the course at first and were allowed to repeat it, an option given to both men and women who excel in some aspects but which extends the time spent in the course.

A passage in a July 30 column by Lauren M. Sardi, “Before pointing finger at other countries, look at our own traditions,” was incorrect. The passage in the second paragraph should have read as follows: “What most people don't know, however, is that infibulation, which includes the complete removal of external female genitalia and a suturing of the vaginal opening, occurs in less than 10 percent of all documented cases of FGM, according to the World Health Organization. By far, more common forms of FGM involve a procedure in which only the female foreskin is removed.”
