Unable to interpret Error 896: country [closed]

I have an error message 896 for the country in the Honor Roll (KIA) template for Jesse Story, Jr., who was killed at Bunker Hill during the American Revolution.  I have compared what I have on the profile to the template instructions and still can't figure out what is causing the error message.  I also checked the category page to see whether that was the problem, but what I have matches the category listing and Jesse's profile appears there.

Any help you can give me to get this off my "Suggestions" list would be greatly appreciated.

I believe the solution is to remove the country.  (At least so editbot's activity on profiles I manage would indicate.)
Thank you, Melanie.  It didn't occur to me to check the Changes tab to see whether someone/thing had done the correction before I tried tackling it.  Now I know.

EditBot removed the reason for the error, namely the usage of the parameter "country". This is no longer supported by the template.

Thank you, Aaron.  Perhaps in this case I should indeed thank the bot!
