Today is September 11, 2018.   Only one thing comes to mind, 9-11.

September 11, 2001 is a day this country will never forget.


Captain Vincent Brunton of Truck Company Ladder 105, one of the best from our neighborhood died that day.  “Vinny” as we all knew him, was on the job in the World Trade Center doing his job…saving people.

Vinny attended Holy Name grammar school and Bishop Ford High School.  He was an excellent athlete too.  I recall watching him run point guard in the schoolyard during the summer league; and loved his passion playing football for Farrell’s down at Farragut Road.

RIP Vinny.

(Jan. 2, 1958-Sept. 11, 2001)
