Remembering An American Hero

Dear PSGT Anthony John Estella, 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

Holy Trinity Grammar School, West 83rd st, NYC

Tony was one of my best friends prior to us graduating from Holy Trinity Grammar School in Manhattan in the early 1950's. I first met Anthony, who we all called Tony, in the late 1940's after he and his family relocated to New York from the Phillipines, where he was born. A gifted basketball player even as a grammar school student, so much so he won a scholorship to All Hallows HS in the Bronx for his talents on the court.


We were the same age, he just 2 months older. I knew both his mother and father as well as his younger sister who eventually became a Catholic nun.


Lost track of him after I joined the US Navy in 1956 and he joined the US Army that same year. I got out in 1960 after my 4 year enlistment expired. Tony however, decided to make the army his career which ultimately led to his deployment to Vietnam in October of 1967.


A true and loyal friend, will never forget him. God rest his soul.
