Jack T. Ackerson US Navy

 

The article, July 25, 1917 tells of Jack T. Ackerson arriving in France and the article, May 6, 1918, tells of Jack going to Hackensack High school and speaking to Students.  Click here to view the letter home which appeared in ‘The Evening Record’ December 13, 1917, telling of his experience before Jack T. Ackerson spoke at the
High School in May of 1918
.  The letter is very interesting and very ‘vivid’ as the article states in his explanations of events he experienced while at sea.
