CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | MAY 9-15, 2019 LINCOLN 5 LINCOLN – On June 6, exactly 75 years after the Western Allied troops of World War II stormed the shores of Normandy, France on D-Day, a Lincoln teacher will perform on Omaha Beach under the director of D-Day survivor Col. Arnald Gabrial, paying tribute to those who gave their lives in service of their country. Central Lincoln Elementary School music teacher Dan Pedro was invited to participate in the concert by Gabrial, who has been returning to Normandy every five years to direct the anniversary concerts. Pedro met Gabrial two years ago as a gradu- ate student at the American Band College, where Gabrial served as a guest conductor. While Pedro said performing tenor saxophone for the anniversary of D-Day would be an amazing honor no matter what, he expects perform- ing under the direction of Gabrial on Omaha Beach to be an especially emotional and humbling experience. "I feel privileged to be able to experience this with him," he said. A cursory search uncovers a trea- sure trove of information about Col. Gabrial, a musical icon whose story is one of tragedy and triumph. The soon-to-be 94-year-old served as a machine gunner during World War II, landing on D-Day with the 29th Infantry Division, earning two Bronze medals for his service on and after D-Day. In a video interview with the American Veterans Center last year, Gabrial opens up about losing two close friends during the Battle of the Bulge when a mortar shell hit their foxhole. "We had become very close because I had met them and we had been together for two months. In combat that's very unusual, because when I trained as a machine gun- ner with the 29th in England, they said the life expectancy of a machine gunner in combat was three day," he said. After his discharge from the Army in 1946, his high school band teacher encouraged him to pursue a career in music and attend college at Ithaca, where Gabrial went on to earn a bachelor and master's degree in music education. After college, he achieved the highest score ever on the Air Force bandleaders exam and rejoined the Lincoln music teacher invited to anniversary D-Day performance By NICOLE DOTZENROD Valley Breeze Staff Writer nicole@valleybreeze.com See D-DAY, Page 10 The Lincoln Board of License Commissioners hereby gives notice that the following corporation has made application to keep for sale and to sell Alcoholic Beverages in the Town of Lincoln from December 1, 2018, to November 30, 2019, inclusive under the provisions of Section 3-5 and 3-7 of RIGL.
