    You are honored and remembered on the Heartland Youth for Decency Vietnam Memorial. The Vietnam Memorial was built by a group of high school and college students from the La Mesa area called Heartland Youth for Decency back in 1970. The memorial park is dedicated to veterans who were living in Southern California's Heartland area (consisting of the communities of La Mesa, Spring Valley, Jamul, Lemon Grove, El Cajon, Santee, and Lakeside) when they accepted the call to military service, during which service they gave their lives in the Vietnam War.

    Dear SGT Roy Lee Estrada, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    It has been 37 years since you left us but you are still in my thoughts.

    To me you are more than a fallen hero, you were an inspiration.

    While you were here you were a friend, a mentor, a family member, a brother, and a person to be admired. How I remember the kindness and friendship that will last my entire life and how I looked up to three people at that time of my life which were my father, your father, and you. Now, all of you have past on and I will miss all of you more than ever.

    Your friend forever,
