In a Veteran’s Day story titled “Students learn the impact of military service,” which appeared in our Alta pages on November 16, we regret a misquote. “I know I’m not a veteran, but I’m the wife of a veteran,” a quote from Sherry DeRoos at Alta-Aurelia High School’s Veterans Day assembly, was inadvertently changed to “I know I’m not a veteran, but I’m like a veteran.” Unfortunately that error gravely changed the meaning of her quote, implications of which we sincerely apologize for. In no way did the Pilot-Tribune intend to misrepresent what DeRoos said or the meaning of her message.
