ABOUT 100 INTERVIEWS WITH GREENBURGH VETERANS AIRING NON STOP ON GREENBURGH TV FROM FRIDAY NIGHT TO TUESDAY MORNING IN HONOR OF OUR LOCAL HEROES DURING MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

The town of Greenburgh is proud to air about 100 interviews with veterans on the Greenburgh public access TV station non stop Friday evening to Tuesday morning. Each of the 100 interviews are about a half hour long and can be viewed on cablevision channel 75 and Verizon Channel 35 if you reside in Greenburgh and the villages within Greenburgh. This is the 4th year we have aired non stop interviews of veterans. Every week Alan Hochberg and Steve Wittenberg interview additional veterans.

The interviews focus on veterans who served during World War II and the Korean conflict. About 4 years ago I created a project to record the memories of our veterans who live in Greenburgh. The goal was to create a section in the Greenburgh Town Library where these videos would be stored for use by our residents as well as reaching out to the public schools. I had hoped to have this material used as a teaching tool for our students. The hardships these men and women of Greenburgh suffered was extraordinary they truly were the Greatest Generation

. On memorial day we honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their nation. I asked Alan Hochberg and Steve Wittenberg to head up this project. In the 4 years since the start of this work they have interviewed over 100 World War 11 veterans residing in our Town of Greenburgh. Their stories are compelling. Recently a 30 minute movie was made about our veterans by the Town and presented to local schools. The children who viewed this film found the material very interesting and moving. This made history real. Alan Hochberg and I spoke at the Greenville School in Edgemont and the Bailey School in Fairview.

We salute all the military veterans residing in our Town and its Villages. For they truly understood what it means to sacrifice for the common good.

Thank you to the Hartsdale Rotary for donating the funds for the American flags on E. Hartsdale Ave. for the Memorial Day Celebration.
