Wyo. Army and Air National Guard Assist Big Horn County Flood Relief

GREYBULL, Wyo. – Residents stood on a rise over the Big Horn River and watched as community volunteers and National Guardsmen worked together filling sandbags and stacking them at the edge of lurking waters. Family homes, farms and businesses were threatened as jagged bricks of ice created a dam forcing water levels to rise to unimaginable heights.
The 920th Forward Support Company arrived on Friday evening followed by the 153rd Airlift Wing. Together they formed rapid assistance teams (RAT) one and two in order to provide assistance for local flooding and prevention in the Bighorn county area. As the mission progressed, members of the 2nd Battalion, 300th Field Artillery Regiment provided additional support forming RAT three March 10.
