Release Date: May 24, 2017

Watch 150 Greenburgh veterans tell their stories of bravery, patriotism on local cable TV access TV this Memorial Day weekend   

OR...watch individual interviews on demand! http://greenburghpublicaccess.com/veterans-living-history

  

More than 150   Greenburgh veterans, most from World War II, have been interviewed for a town history project and each of their half hour interviews can be seen non stop on Greenburgh cable TV local access TV stations this weekend. Because each interview is about a half hour long and because there are more than 150 interviews the interviews will be broadcast non stop from Friday night to Tuesday morning. The interviews will air on channels 75 and 76 on Cablevision and on channels 34 and 35 on Verizon FIOS. Copies of the interviews are also available for viewing at the Greenburgh Library.

 

 Residents who don't want to stay up the entire Memorial Day weekend can watch individual tapes on the Greenburgh public access TV website http://greenburghpublicaccess.com/veterans-living-history

 

 

The interviews – interspersed with war footage and put together with help from Vietnam War vet Steve Wittenberg and town employee George Malone – chronicle the veterans’ experiences during and after the war. Alan Hochberg, a former resident of Greenburgh conducted most of the interviews during a three year period. Some died shortly after their interviews but their stories will be shown.

 

The Greenburgh Living History is a treasure. Students and future generations will be able to hear the stories of local heroes who contributed to democracy. We must never forget the contributions Greenburgh residents made fighting for our freedoms and democracy. Every year we play the tapes non stop during Memorial Day and Veterans day weekends.
