In October, family members of the fallen USS Cole sailors gathered for a somber 11th anniversary at Naval Station Norfolk.
Gathered at the memorial were friends and crew members, both present and past. Even then they talked of the man accused of masterminding the Cole attack getting his day in court.
Former USS Cole Sailor Lydia Reid said, "Something is being done, but nothing will ever take it away. Can't say there's justice because it won't bring back those that we love."
Abd Al Rahim Al Nashiri is charged with the deaths of the 17 USS Cole sailors and ultimately could be sentenced to death.
In addition to Norfolk, the Pentagon has also set up a viewing center at Fort Meade, Maryland for family members of the victims.
