Vietnam War veteran's ring lost at Sherman Sam's Club

SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII) - The search is on for the owner of a Vietnam War veteran's ring found in Sherman.

Late in January, someone brought a unique item to a Sherman Sam's Club Manager, telling him he found it in the store.

"This is a service ring from the Vietnam War," said Pharmacist Sonja Borah. "We would like for the owner to have their ring back."

Borah said managers took to social media, posting photos of the ring which have since been shared thousands of times.

"We've shared it on Facebook and gotten over 10,000 shares," she said. "We need the owner to come forward."

The ring shows the years 1962 to 1966 and initials B.W.W.

Sherman VFW Junior Vice-Commander Steve Batchelder said rings like this usually have a very special meaning for veterans who go out of their way to custom order them.

"They can be important to a veteran," he said. "It's a memorable thing. Not everybody has them."

The ring shows the Vietnam ribbon and a wall saying "You are not forgotten."

"Some guys choose to forget what they've see,n and others want a constant reminder of what has happened in their life," Batchelder said.

Borah said people from as far as Paris and Southern Oklahoma come to the Sherman Sam's Club so it could belong to anyone.

If you recognize it or own the ring, she said call Sam's Club, ask for a manager and show proof of ownership.

"It's really important. This is our veteran, they're why we're here," she said. "For them to have their ring back means a lot to us and them."
