Army Private First Class Kevin C. Ott
COLUMBUS - 

State Senator Bob Peterson (R-Sabina) today announced the passage of legislation honoring the legacy of Army PFC Kevin Ott by designating a portion of U.S. Route 62 in Pickaway County as the "Army PFC Kevin C. Ott Memorial Highway."

“Today we honor a young man who gave his life in his service to our country,” said Peterson. “This memorial is one way we can help to ensure that his legacy as an American hero will long be remembered.”  

Private First Class Kevin C. Ott died on June 28, 2003 while serving during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Ott went missing in action on June 25 south of Baghdad and his remains were discovered three days later. He was one of the first U.S. casualties in the Iraq War.

A graduate of Westfall High School, Ott was inspired to join the service following the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

Senate Bill 182 passed the Senate with bipartisan and unanimous support and now goes to the House of Representatives for further consideration.
