John B. Voskian is listed under “Did You Know?” because I do not know whether he graduated from Hackensack High School. The town of Oradell, at the time, had a choice of going to Hackensack or Englewood High School.

John B. Voskian is buried at Hackensack Cemetery, so for that connection, he is listed under “Did You Know?”.

Voskian’s service in the Pacific Theater during World War II where he received the Good Conduct Medal and the Bronze Star with Oak Leaf Cluster for his “heroic service performed in the line of duty”, as the article states.
