Greene County Honors Soldiers for Flood Response

KINGSTON, N.Y.-- New York Army National Guard Capt. Dan Colomb, commander of the 1156th Engineer Company, displays the Greene County Proclamation presented by Legislative Chairman Wayne Speenburgh and members of the Greene County Legislature, at left, following a honors ceremony here at the Kingston Armory Jan. 7. About 120 Soldiers from the 1156th Engineers staged with other New York National Guard troops prior to the landfall of Hurricane Irene August 26, 2011 at Camp Smith and Kingston, N.Y. When flooding occurred in Windham and other communities, Soldiers were sent to aid civil authorities., Assigned to rescue trapped civilians in Windham, the Soldiers had to get out of their vehicles, lock arms, enter the sometimes waist-deep water, and use baby steps to find safe fording sites free of drop-offs or other hazards, Colomb said.
