Among his numerous accomplishments, Estrella was recognized for100% inventory accuracy and the replenishment of 11,266 line items valued at over $350 million; oversight and compliance of 80,711 material transactions valued at $20.2 million with 100 percent Aviation Consumable and Flight Clothing inventory validity with a net effectiveness of 95.08%; and oversaw disposal of 4,126 pounds in expired hazardous material. His efforts in overseeing the expedition of seven essential items for salvage operations in recovering a downed F-35 are recognized by others who now routinely seek his advice for all facets of transportation and materiel movement across Fifth and Seventh Fleets areas of operation.
