- Associated Press - Monday, April 28, 2014

BOSTON (AP) - In a story April 27 about a new Defense Department policy providing military recruits with U.S.-made sneakers, The Associated Press erroneously reported about companies that meet federal requirements for the policy. The article said New Balance was one of the few shoe makers that meet all federal requirements; in fact, the Pentagon says no U.S. shoe manufacturer does. The story also erroneously reported how recruits will obtain the footwear. They will get a stipend for shoes but not be provided them directly.
