A military installation in Brooklyn is welcoming families of 9/11 victims this week to watch pretrial hearings in Cuba for five men charged in the terrorist attacks.

The sessions in Guantanamo Bay are closed to the public. But relatives who register can see them on closed-circuit television at Fort Hamilton, a U.S. Army base. Another space there is reserved for first responders.

The military commission hearings will also be shown at forts in New Jersey, Massachusetts and Maryland.

The general public can watch the proceedings via closed-circuit at Fort Meade, in Maryland.
