There was no shortage of heroes on that day sixteen years ago when the U.S. came under attack. Here are a few of their stories:
Operation Yellow Ribbon is the story of a little village in Newfoundland whose residents welcomed and cared for thousands of stranded airline passengers after U.S. airspace was closed on 9/11.
Boatlift is the story of the largest maritime evacuation in history, which took place in Manhattan on 9/11. Half a million people were evacuated in nine hours after the Coast Guard put out a call for help and hundreds of locals responded.
The Man in the Red Bandana is the story of Welles Crowther, a young equities trader in New York City who lost his life on 9/11 while saving the lives of strangers.
The Search and Rescue Dogs of 9/11 is about some of the dogs who searched for survivors amid the wreckage of the Pentagon and the World Trade Center.
