the town of Greenburgh has a living history initiative. Over 90 veterans, most of WWII and Korea have been interviewed. The 30 minute interviews of each of the 90+ veterans are played on Greenburgh public access TV from Friday to the end of Veterans day and Memorial day each year. We continue to interview more veterans. The interviews, conducted by Alan Hochberg and produced with the help of Steve Wittenberg, are being archived at the Library of Congress in DC and the Greenburgh Library.
