If you're ever stranded in a monumental flood, you might want to think about giving these heroic guys a call. Dale Young, Johnathan Jones, Kevin Jones and Saxton Detwiler knew people were stranded in an eight and a half foot flood, so they got in a friend's military personnel vehicle and went to the rescue. Thanks to them, between 800 to 1000 people were rescued over a week's time while Hurricane Harvey ripped through Texas. The heroic foursome joins our RightThisMinute hosts via Skype to talk about their good deeds.
