Retrieving data using iterate and eliminating duplicate values

I am executing 2 different sql queries in my action class, the first query retrieves values that are then used in the second query to retrieve related data. Here is my problem, the second query is retrieving from a comment table where there may be two or more rows of data. When this occurs, my jsp will show the same values for each row of comments found. I want to eliminate the duplicate displays and only display the comment. I am new to struts and am not sure how to do that. Here is my action class code looping through the results of the first query:

Here is the jsp code I am using to iterate:

The display is looks kind of like this:
a b c d e f g comment 1
a b c d e f g comment 2
a b c d e f g comment 3
I want it to look like this:
a b c d e f g comment 1
comment 2
comment 3
How do I get this result using the iterate?
