2/8/17 JOURNAL 12 corrections:
• J192 Taking Some Flak: In the VC, last sentence, between "count" and "for" add "double".
• On page 31 of JOURNAL 12, the last sentence in the box of the "Single-Hex Firegroupology" article indicates that Final Fire in the DFPh might be available after having used Subsequent First Fire in the MPh. But that is not the case, since using SFF would mark a unit with a Final Fire counter, which precludes firing in the DFPh. We regret this error, which was introduced by the Editors in the editing process.
