Honor and Remember

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.

Charles Alvarez

My dad Jim Catania served with Charles in Vietnam. Every year I take a group of 8th graders from St. Joseph, Michigan to Washington D.C. One of my most emotional visits is the Vietnam Memorial. I have a special list of soldiers given to me by my father who were killed in action and are on the wall. Charles is first on that list. I teach my kids how to find these fallen heroes and create a rubbing of their name from the wall. I have them do this every time we go to Washington. Although I have never met Charles, I seem to have a connection to him and the other men through my father and my many visits to the wall. There is never a time that I do not visit every name from his list to pay my respects to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. I thank God for men like Charles and my dad every day.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear WO Charles Allen Alvarez, 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
