Your Jan. 28 (“GW grad reports from front lines”) story regarding Megan Stack’s coverage on the war in Afghanistan contained a glaring error. I believe that the ship she traveled on was not the USS Carl Vincent, as reported, but rather the USS Carl Vinson. A quick visit to the U.S. Navy’s Web site would have verified the name of the ship for you.
The men and women who serve on this ship fought bravely for this country and played a major role in America’s war on terrorism. At the very least, they deserve the respect of their ship’s name being reported correctly and printed free from errors of accuracy.
