In January 2008, I met with the veterans from Hackensack at the Crows Nest Restaurant on Route 17.  The veterans invited me to a dinner to thank me for the work I had done on the Hackensack High School Wall Unit. 

After dinner, Frank P. Gallitano filled out a Veteran form on his military service.  A lifetime Hackensack resident, Frank P. Gallitano attended Hackensack High School for two years in the late 1940’s. 

He served in the military from 1951 to 1953 during the Korean War
Frank P. Gallitano became a Corporal and received the Bronze Star and the
Purple Heart during his service. 

Let us never forget the soldiers sacrifice.
