ABSTRACT
This article reports the terrorist attacks against the World Trade Center in New York left many feeling afraid and helpless. Not so for captain John Pantleo. As a member of the 319th Air Refueling Wing at Grand Forks Air Force Base, the tanker pilot knew he would fight back. Pantleo, assistant director of operations for the 912th Air Refueling Squadron, said that after 9-11 Pantleo thought that it was the greatest thing in the world that he could do something about it. Within hours, the "Warriors of the North" were called into action to refuel an F-16 transporting the Federal Emergency Management Agency director from Montana to New York. Military transport was required because commercial airplanes were grounded.
