Good Morning, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
The call-up of reserves is continuing, with the Pentagon mobilizing more than 19-hundred people ... but NO Virginia units are included.
The nearly two thousand reservists were called up yesterday.
That brings the total number of Reserve and National Guard troops called up since the September 11th attacks to more than 14- thousand.
The Pentagon plans to mobilize 35- thousand troops initially-- but says more could be needed later.

President Bush will visit C-I-A headquarters today, as he continues preparations for a war on terrorism.
Aides say he'll deliver a pep talk at the Langley headquarters named after his father.
Meanwhile, the families of those missing in the World Trade Center attack will begin paperwork today for getting death certificates for their loved ones.
A team of 60 attorneys will aid the families -- free of charge.
And a special panel of judges will help speed the process.
Jennifer Jones is in Washington this morning with the latest.
