11 Bravo Vietnam

Vincent Gabriel’s - 11 Bravo Vietnam - A Soldiers Story Documentary -- Vincent Gabriel, Jr returned from his tour of duty in Vietnam thirty eight years ago. He fought in the Tet offensive of 1968.

Now Gabriel, a noted Midcoast Maine musician, has committed his experiences to songs and a series of spoken vignettes. The result is the moving documentary, 11 Bravo Vietnam , A Soldiers Story. The 55 minute presentation consists of songs and spoken memories with a multimedia accompaniment of documentary footage and personal photographs.

11 Bravo Vietnam , A Soldiers Story is a virtual scrapbook of one young man’s experiences in combat from the day he receives word of his induction to his homecoming. He sings of terribly brief friendships on the battle field, the searing awareness of his mortality and the random forces which preserve one life and take another. He tells of the importance of family and humor.

It's a deeply personal tale. A tale, he notes, which is only one among a million others. And now that American men and women are again deployed half a world away in Iraq and Afghanistan , Gabriel’s memoir is more relevant than ever. As the news media flash footage of anonymous warriors and cite statistics, 11 Bravo reminds us that each one of those figures on the screen has a dream for the future, hopes and loved ones, and a constant fear.

Gabriel’s documentary is not about policy, or politicians, or generals. 11 Bravo is about the combat soldier’s day to day struggle for survival in the chaos of a war - survival of the soul as well as of the body. Vincent Gabriel served as a pointman,radio operator with Charlie Company, Second Battalion, 18th Regiment,First Infantry Division during the 1968 Tet Offensive.

2009 UniBank Blackstone River Valley Greenway Challenge Triathlon

The 9th annual UniBank Blackstone River Valley Greenway Challenge occurred on September 26, 2009. The route brought athletes and volunteers through the region beginning at Waters Farm in Sutton, Massachusetts, and through 47.3 miles ending at Lincoln Woods State Park in Lincoln Rhode Island. The course navigated the Blackstone River Valley region and featured many recreational opportunities for running, biking and paddling through back roads, trails, the Blackstone River, the Blackstone River Bikeway and the Blackstone Canal.

The seventy-nine teams, representing each of the six competing divisions were led to places such as the Southern New England Trunkline Trail (SNETT), the Blackstone Gorge, and Albion Falls. A running route brought the participants to the less recognized Cobble Hill in Rhode Island, which has since been unofficially named by our athletes “Heart Break Hill of the Blackstone”.

The Greenway Challenge volunteer team of 14 photographers captured the day. This show tells the story of the day.
