In a Nov. 26 story about renewable-energy jobs for military veterans, The Associated Press quoted former Marine Ben Noland as saying he served two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. Based on information from Noland, the story also said he served eight years in the Marines.
According to Marine Corps spokeswoman Maj. Shawn Haney, Noland's records show he was stationed in Kuwait, not Iraq and Afghanistan. Haney also said Noland served four years on active duty and four in Individual Ready Reserve. During Ready Reserve, a Marine can be called back to active duty. But he is not considered to be serving in the Marines during that period, according to Haney.
