139 INTERVIEWS OF VETERANS TO AIR ON PUBLIC ACCESS TV DURING MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND NON STOP—EACH OF THE INTERVIEWS IS ABOUT HALF HOUR LONG
NAMES OF SOME OF OUR HEROES WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE INTERVIEWS POSTED BELOW
During the Memorial Day weekend we will air approximately 139 interviews of veterans nonstop from Friday evening to Tuesday morning. Each of the interviews is about a half hour long. Most of the veterans are veterans of World War II and Korean conflict. Some of the veterans served during the Vietnam conflict. The interviews with World War II,Korean era veterans & Vietnam Veterans who live in Greenburgh will air on cablevision channel 76 and Verizon channel 35.
In recent years Alan Hochberg and Steve Wittenberg have been coordinating the town’s living history initiative. The interviews were produced with the help of cable TV access coordinator George Malone and his assistant, Jannelle Wallace. They have interviewed about 139 veterans –every month three or four additional interviews are taped, each about a half hour long. The interviews are aired nonstop on public access TV during the Veterans day and Memorial day weekends. The interviews are being archived at the Greenburgh library and will also be archived at the United States Library of Congress in Washington DC. Their initial priority: interviewing the oldest veterans (World War II and Korean conflict). Eventually, veterans of more recent wars will be interviewed.
The Living History interviews are also being shared with local schools. We hope to highlight the contributions of Greenburgh heroes who fought for our democracy. We are proud of our local heroes and hope that future generations will never forget their contributions to freedom. Sadly, some of the veterans of World War II who were interviewed for our living history project have passed away. Their stories won’t be forgotten.
These are the names of many of the veterans who have participated in the living history initiative
