This summer's flooding of the Missouri River has caused damage to property and displaced residents, mostly in the Pierre, Fort Pierre and Dakota Dunes areas. The South Dakota National Guard was called out to assist with the coordination of building levees, with the security of property and with maintaining the levees.

Philip's Mark Foley was one of the guardsmen called to be on duty during the ordeal.
