I received a text from Travis’s wife about finding her husband’s VMI class ring. I was able to meet Travis and his daughter this last Friday and heard his story. Travis said he had thrown an apple core off a friends back deck when his VMI class ring went sailing with it. Travis had searched several days trying to find his ring with no luck. I started my search in front of the deck area then moved outward. I finally was able to get a shallow signal and using my pinpointer to brush the grass aside. Boom there it was..
I was shocked at the size of his ring. One of the largest ring’s I have ever seen. I called over his daughter and she picked it up and cleaned it off then we tried to surprise him. But he knew something was up when he saw both of us standing there waiting on him to come off the deck .. that’s when she gave him his ring.
You could tell his ring was very meaningful to him and having his daughter there to give it back to him was an awesome moment.
Thanks Travis for trusting me enough to find your ring.
