Warrior

Pete, as he was known, was misfortunately "swallowed" by the Beast that was Laos during the war; that is to say, very few Americans were ever seen again if captured in Laos. Though there is no possibility Russell P Bott is currently alive, and is more likely to have died or was executed not long after capture, his family deserves to have his body to bury. After forensically studying the case of Staff Sgt. Bott and his RT leader for almost 30 years, I believe there is still time to interview villagers in Laos who witnessed Pete being paraded by his captors. It is also possible that there are some villagers that may know the location of his burial. Time is running out, but his family deserves to know.

Remembering a Hero

I obtained an MIA bracelet with the name Russell Bott in the early 70's. I wore it for many years and I still have it to this day. I often think about him and still pray for him and his family. I recently found this website and read his story. He truly is the hero I always imagined him to be. Thank you to his family for their sacrifice and thank you to Russell for his bravery and service to our Country. God Bless! I will forever remember!
