Alaska National Guard supports flood victims in Galena

Residents of Galena, Alaska, prepare to load into a C-130 Hercules from the 144th Airlift Squadron, Alaska Air National Guard, during an evacuation of the town May 28. Galena flooded as the Yukon River overflowed during the breakup of winter ice. Residents of the town were transported to Fairbanks to wait for the water levels to subside. The Alaska National Guard sent multiple aircraft and rescue personnel to the rural Alaska village to assist with rescue efforts. (Photo by Sgt.
