LT James J. Kulesz ( - 1997)

LT James J. Kulesz was the Gunnery Division officer at the time of commissioning, under LT Harvey Lasko, who was the Weapons Officer. LT Kulesz (known to me as “J J Kool”) passed away in 1997. He rose to the rank of Captain. He was a plank owner.

JJ Kulesz, my first and commissioning division officer was one of the coolest dudes I’ve ever met or known.
