Aug. 2015 View­port: (1) The squadron con­vert­ing from the CH-46 “Phrog” to the Osprey is HMM-774, not HMM-74. (2) The CH-46 was not the first he­li­copter to fly troops around en­emy po­si­tions. The Marine Corps had sought to em­ploy a strat­egy of “ver­ti­cal en­vel­op­ment” since the late 1940s, and the CH-46 ful­filled that mis­sion to an un­prece­dented de­gree. The er­rors were in­tro­duced dur­ing edit­ing.

June/july 2015 “Win­ners”: The win­ner of the Mil­i­tary cat­e­gory (p. 44) did cap­ture a true dou­ble rain­bow; how­ever, in our at­tempt to make it more vis­i­ble to the reader, the in­ner rain­bow was mis­tak­enly du­pli­cated. The two rain­bows should be mir­ror im­ages, with the two red arcs fac­ing each other.
