In Honor Of Captain Ben Moulton
Captain Ben Moulton of Emmett will receive a final welcome home on Thursday, Feb. 22, 2024, as Captain Moulton's body is returned to his home state of Idaho.
Captain Moulton, 27, was a CH-53E helicopter pilot from Emmett, Idaho. He was commissioned in March 2019 and promoted to captain last August. His decorations include the National Defense Service Medal. Captain Moulton was aboard the helicopter that crashed during a training exercise in the mountains outside San Diego on Tuesday, February 6th, 2024. All five Marines aboard the helicopter were killed.
To honor Capt. Moulton's homecoming and in honor of his military service and his sacrifice on Thursday, February 22nd at approximately 4:30pm the community is invited to gather along the procession Emmett route from S. Washington Ave. to E. Main St. with the procession ending at the Emmett City Park. All are encouraged to display the American flag and to wear red white and blue to further pay tribute to Captain Moulton.
"Capt. Benjamin Moulton and the four other U.S. Marines killed Tuesday gave everything for our country and our freedom. The tragic news of their deaths while they were training to fight our enemies weighs heavy on our hearts. Capt. Moulton was an Idaho native with roots dating back to the 1880s. Throughout his life, Capt. Moulton made his family, community, and state proud with his many achievements and his devotion to the U.S. Marine Corps and our great country. Idahoans, please pray for the loved ones of these heroes, and join me in honoring Capt. Benjamin Moulton, an 'Idaho boy' who gave it all for us," Governor Little said.
Please note: To better assure the safety of the procession and other motorists, there will be no parking or pedestrian gathering permitted along Highway 16. Any unnecessary travel on Highway 16 or the procession route through Emmett during this time is discouraged.

National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Community Press Release:
To all City of Emmett property owners,
Did you know flooding is America’s most common natural disaster?
Many people don’t realize how common and costly floods are and don’t have flood insurance. This leaves a lot of renters, business owners, and homeowners vulnerable: one inch of water can cause up to $25,000 in damage.
Review these common myths to learn why flood insurance is so important to protect the life you’ve built in the City of Emmett.
MYTH: You can’t buy flood insurance if you don’t live in a floodplain.
Flooding can happen anywhere, not just in high-risk areas. Anyone in a participating National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) community can purchase flood insurance.
MYTH: You can’t buy flood insurance if you live in a high-risk flood area.
Anyone can buy flood insurance in a participating NFIP community. There are also options for purchasing private flood insurance. It’s important to know that it takes 30 days for a policy to go into effect; don’t wait until storms are predicted or underway.
MYTH: Homeowners insurance includes flood insurance.
Spoiler: It usually doesn’t! To protect your home from flood damage, you typically need a separate flood insurance policy. Business owners and renters should also purchase flood insurance to protect their property from flooding.
MYTH: You can’t purchase flood insurance if your property has been flooded before.
You can! You are eligible to purchase flood insurance after your home, apartment, or business has flooded if your community participates in the NFIP.
MYTH: Federal disaster assistance will pay for flood damage.
Not always, and not for all of it. Disaster assistance is available only after a Presidential disaster declaration. When available, it won’t pay for all the damage. Disaster assistance often comes in the form of a U.S. Small Business Administration disaster loan, which must be repaid with interest. Insurance is your best means of recovery from flooding.
The City of Emmett has recently adopted ordinance O2021-4, Flood Control.
By adopting this ordinance, the City of Emmett has become a National Flood Insurance Program, (NFIP) community, making city residents eligible to obtain flood insurance if they choose.
