Fighting floods with troops and trucks

Recent heavy flooding throughout the Midwest over the last several weeks – affecting some seven million people in 15 states, according to news reports – prompted National Guard units to deploy and provide a variety of help. For example, soldiers with the Missouri National Guard aided the Missouri Department of Transportation by providing traffic control, cleanup, and water purification services.
