    I began wearing Russell Bott's bracelet in about 1993. I was teaching a modern American history class in England and,as usual, I always made a point to discuss the human cost of Vietnam not just the politics and then tell Russell Bott's story. This particular year (2003) I had a girl named Kirsty Bott in the class. She went home and told her parents about the lesson and came back the next day with a letter from her mother telling me that Russell was in fact an American relative of theirs. In fact Kirsty's great uncle. You are not forgotten Russell Peter Bott. NH

    While going through the memories and cherished possessions of my mother who recently passed, I found an original and very old MIA bracelet with Master Sergeant Bott's name. I would love to pass it down to a member of Russell's family so please contact me

    DEAR MASTER SERGEANT BOTT,
    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE AS A SPECIAL FORCES COMBAT ENGINEER. YOU ARE STILL MIA.
    PLEASE COME HOME.
    SUNDAY WAS THE 42ND ANNIVERSARY OF PRESIDENT FORD CALLING THIS DAY THE OFFICIAL END TO THE WAR. IF IT WAS ONLY THAT EASY. I AM SO SORRY. IT HAS BEEN FAR TOO LONG FOR ALL OF YOU TO HAVE BEEN GONE. WE APPRECIATE ALL YOU HAVE DONE, AND YOUR SACRIFICE. WATCH OVER THE U.S.A., IT STILL NEEDS YOUR COURAGE. GOD BLESS YOU. MAY THE ANGELS BE AT YOUR SIDE. REST IN PEACE. YOU ARE ALL IN OUR PRAYERS.

  • My mother wore Peter's bracelet, want it to go to Peter's family

    It has been a total honor to be associated with the bracelet of this hero.
    Will be glad to keep his bracelet in our family and pass it down through the generations,
    but can't help to think we are only care takers and it really belongs to
    the younger generations of Peter's family.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
