My grandpa and my WWII book on TV news

WWII veteran Cortland Hopkins will be signing copies of my book, Longshore Soldiers on Veterans Day, November 11, 2010.

Copies of the book will be sold for $20 this Thursday at Evergreen Commons, 1070 Luther Road, in East Greenbush. Cortland will be sharing stories and signing autographs from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. A portion of sales will go to Evergreen Commons' activities & entertainment budget.

Last evening the Albany Channel 6 news interviewed my grandfather. You can watch the video below:

Nice interview. I'll have to pick up a copy of your book next time I order something from Amazon. It's a shame that logistics rarely gets any attention either in real life or in wargaming.

I've put your book on my wish list for Christmas.

Congratulations on your book and great interview.

Consul said...

Fantastic! Congratulations on the book too - it must be a great feeling to know you've finished it and it's out there!

I'd love to do something similar but unfortunately not much survives in the way of photos and personal possessions from my relatives that have interesting stories so it may be difficult to make something interesting visually.

Thanks Consul, Completing a book on this grandfather really made me wish I had interviewed my other grandfather. I remember he sat me down one day when I was a kid and told me a bunch of stories, but now I can't remember the details. I was lucky to be able to talk to Grandpa Corty and his comrades.
