Pfc. Joshua Haller, a member of the New York Army National Guard's 827th Engineer Company, uses a hydraulic excavator to remove a boulder and other flood debris from Fulmer Creek, N.Y., July 3, 2013. About 24 hours after being called up by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Soldiers of the unit, based in Horseheads, N.Y., began removing flood debris from Fulmer Creek and Fords Creek, to stabilize the streams and prevent further flood damage. The Soldiers also restored Fords Creek to its pre-flood course, increased its flow, and cleared debris from a mile-long section of Fulmer Creek. Haller is from Odessa, N.Y.
