Veteran evacuated

Capt. Grant Larson, of the 119th Maintenance Squadron, left, and Tom Hall, a Cass County Sherriff’s deputy, right, assist 87-year-old Obert Tenold in removing his life jacket April 9 as Tenold is helped out of a Cass County Otter Team airboat near Harwood, N.D. A joint government agency team is evacuating Tenold from his home, at his request, as floodwater surrounds his residence, making it impossible for him to get out on his own. The team is an example of how agencies are working together to help others during the 2011 Red River Valley flood. As of Saturday April 9, about 480 N.D. Air and Army Guardsmen are conducting flood operations. (DoD photo by Senior Master Sgt. David H. Lipp)
