[ARCHIVED] masks required tonight...150 living history interviews with veterans to air Memorial Day weekend

Over 150 interviews with Veterans of World War II and the Korean conflict will air on public access TV Friday beginning at midnight till Tuesday morning. Interviews were conducted over a dozen years ago!

Because of the increase in Covid cases the Town Board will require residents who attend tonight's Town Board meeting to wear masks at the meeting which begins at 7 PM....

Interviews with 150 Greenburgh veterans (most of World War II and the Korean conflict) will air on Greenburgh public access TV non stop on Memorial Day weekend beginning Friday night at midnight until day until tuesday morning around  8 AM. 

The living history interviews will play on channel 76 on Optimum and channel 35 on FIOS.  Each of the interviews is about half an hour and contain footage from the wars the Greenburgh heroes fought in. Some of the veterans who were interviewed have sadly passed. But, their contributions to our democracy will never be forgotten. It’s important that we give thanks to their bravery and patriotism.  And that todays students and tomorrows students appreciate the role Greenburgh residents played in preserving our democracy.   . The initiative was originally proposed by former residents Alan Hochberg and Steve Wittenberg. George Malone, the cableTV coordinator and Janelle Wallace who is the current cable TV coordinator assisted with the edidting. 

These living history tapes air every Memorial Day and Veterans Day and on weekends before or after the holiday and can also be streamed on the town website. The interviews were conducted over a dozen years ago.
