          In 2010, we received an e-mail from Barbara Kessler requesting a Veteran form so she could fill it out on behalf of her brother who had past away on March 8, 2010.  Here is a portion of what she wrote in her e-mail: “Paul W. Kessler passed away on March 8, 2010.  Paul graduated from Hackensack High School in 1961 and was a Vietnam War Veteran, having served in the U.S. Navy on the U.S.S. Hunley, a submarine tender which supplies Nuclear Submarines with Ammunition and supplies.”
          On the form Barbara Kessler sent us, she wrote he attended Hackensack High School from 1957 to 1961 and graduated. 
Paul W. Kessler was in the Military from 1963 to 1968 he served as a bookkeeper, store man, and was a Chief Petty Officer 3rd class during his service on board the USS Hunley AS-31.
