Flood waters inch up on the levee

The Mississippi River rises up to the barriers added to a levee by Members of the Iowa Air and Army National Guard north of Burlington, IA. Thanks to the hard work of hundreds of airmen and soldiers the record high waters weren't able to breech the reinforced levee. US Air Force photo by: Msgt.
