9/11 was the day the FDNY suffered its greatest loss of life ever.

On Up Close today, as the tenth anniversary of 9/11 approaches, Diana Williams sits down with FDNY Commissioner Tom Von Essen.

And, first responders ask, what is their role as the city and the country prepare to remember the victims of 9/11?

Also, an air force medic shares his story of what it was like when American Airlines flight 77 crashed into the pentagon.
