FRANK BUCKLEY, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Also with me now is Lt. Col. Alfred Van Cleef of the Salvation Army.

You have the very difficult task of helping to coordinate the grief counselling. Can you tell me about the accommodations that are being made for family members of Flights 11, 77, and 175?

LT. COL. ALFRED VAN CLEEF, SALVATION ARMY: We have six grief counselors on site now. Two of the teams are ready. We're waiting word now from American Airlines. They are diligently working on the plans as far as their private location, where the family will be received. As soon as we are aware of that, then they will make contact with us so our counselors can proceed to where our family members will be arriving. We've done the same thing here in Los Angeles, as well as San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

BUCKLEY: A very difficult day for you, sir.

VAN CLEEF: Very painful.

BUCKLEY: Thanks so much for joining us.
