Harry Schute was a New Jersey State police detective and Army Reservist when the 9/11 terror attacks took place in 2001. He knew that this was an attack on the nation when the second plane hit the second tower of the World Trade Center, and he immediately began preparing for rescue efforts and sensed he would soon get the call to join some form of military response.
