Midwest Flood Assistance by Coast Guard
Personnel from the Sault Ste. Marie Coast Guard is assisting in the flood rescue in North Dakota. This heart-warming picture was posted on their website. Since there isn't much going on in the St. Marys River with such a slow start to the shipping season, it is wonderful they can be helping those poor people who are experiencing the devastating floods. The following paragraph is from the Coast Guard website. I didn't see anything about copyright so I am just copying it for your enjoyment.
