Robey W. Estes Sr. served with the United States Army in the European Theater of Operations. A platoon sergeant in Company E of the 116th Infantry Regiment on D-Day, he was part of the first wave of the attack on Omaha Beach. Wounded during the assault, he was evacuated to England, where he recovered from his injuries. After rejoining his regiment in Germany, he was wounded two more times, and was finally transferred out of the war zone and back to the United States. Mr. Estes returned to his home in Virginia and helped to build Estes Express Lines into one of the nation's top trucking firms. His life exemplifies the valor, fidelity, and sacrifice this Memorial exists to honor. By Resolution of the Board of Directors of the National D-Day Memorial Foundation on 23 September 2005, Robey W. Estes Sr. Plaza of the National D-Day Memorial is named in tribute to him.
