On December 15, 2010, Jacqueline Millevoi sent an E-Mail to the Hackensack Veterans website requesting that her dad, Michael P. Aletta, a 1938 Hackensack High School Graduate, name be added to our World War II veterans list.

She also requested that her cousin, Anthony Gadino, a
1963 Hackensack High School graduate, be added to the Vietnam list.
