Middleburgh, N.Y.-- New York Air National Guard Master Sgt Mike Rogers from the 109th Logistics Readiness Squadron uses a chain saw to help break apart a large tree stump which blocks the track at the Middleburg High school. The Airman was one of 55 members of the 109th Airlift Wing, based at Stratton Air National Guard Base in Scotia, N.Y. who assisted in a project to clean up flood damage at the Middleburgh High School. The Airmen cleaned the school’s gym, basketball court, bus garage, boiler room, track, sewage treatment plant, and hallways during the first day of a two-day operation.
