On August 28, 2006 James Adamo, a 1947 Hackensack High School Graduate, sent me this general information about his service.  He felt he could not do justice to recalling specifics of his service. James Adamo was 78 years old at the time. 

Both James Adamo and Sal Presti sent there information together as James noted: “One reason for myself and Sal sending you info at the same time --- We were both in Korea at the same time for a period of time and in touch for a short time.”

Service together has a way of making friendships last a lifetime.
