U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District Dams saved $1.72 billion in Flood Damage

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Nashville District

U.S. Army Corps of EngineersNashville, TN –  The 10 dams operated by the U.S. Corps of Engineers in the Cumberland River Basin performed as designed during the wettest February on record, saving an estimated $1.72 billion in would-be flood damage to the region.

The ability to hold back water where possible reduced impacts in Nashville by as much as 16 feet, preventing $1.5 billion of damage that would have resulted from higher water. The water level on the Cumberland River in Music City reached 40.93 feet with projects operating, but would have reached an estimated 57.2 feet if the storage projects upstream were not in existence.

101st Airborne Division receives visit from General George Patton’s Granddaughter

BastogneFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell, KY – By late fall of 1944, Allied forces had halted the German advance and secured Paris, France, during World War II. Victory seemed to be at hand. During the relative calm of the German retreat, 101st Airborne Division Soldiers, stationed in Champagne, began to plan a Christmas day football game, known as the “Champagne Bowl.”

In mid-December, however, a German counterattack began in the Ardennes region, and 10,000 Soldiers of the 101st – having never played their game – were called upon to march north and partake in what we now know as the Battle of the Bulge.

Patton, Jr., who commanded the U.S. Third Army in France and Germany following the Allied invasion of Normandy, takes time to read the names of fallen Soldiers at the Screaming Eagle Memorial Aerie inside the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) headquarters during her visit to Fort Campbell, Feb. 25.
