Veterans Day Book Signing in East Greenbush, NY

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 November 8th video above.

Update: The news ran a follow-up on Veterans Day with footage of Cortland signing books. You can view the Nov 11th video clip here.


  1. What a terrific film ...Congratulations on your book and your desire to make things right for your Family with your sticktuitiveness.

  2. So glad to see this...My dad was the Port Sgt Major(GF Kennedy,US Army ) 'til he came home in '46. He told us much of what went on in what was essentially a shared sector, and of the Battle of the Bulge, when Antwerp changed hands twice in 24 hours. Since he passed in '77, I've tried off and on to find out more, without much luck...Many thanks...This is on my X-mas list...
