AL Tag | The Ring Finders

Lost Aggie Ring – FOUND!!!

  • from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)

This past Saturday my wife and I went over to Biloxi for the day to celebrate her birthday. On the way back we must have seen over 100 cars with Texas tags. My wife said, “oh look, there’s another one of your Texas A&M friends headed to the beach”. I smiled and said that I hoped they had their rings on tight. For those that don’t know, I have a special place in my heart for the Aggies and over the years I have helped quite a few get their lost rings back. They have always been really nice and I have learned a bit about their rings and the stories behind them in the process. Sure enough, I got a call Sunday night from Erica who was down for the week with her Aggie friends in Gulf Shores. AL. She believed that while they were throwing a football back and forth her ring must have come off in the sand. Luckily I was in that area for work the next day and I told her I would come take a look over the lunch hour. She didn’t know exactly where it might be so I quickly started gridding out a large area and apologizing to people that I was getting in the way of. Erica is a senior and she is becoming a nurse and committed to the Air Force. As I went back and forth I thought about how she really deserved to get her ring back. I’m glad that the Man upstairs agreed with me because after about 40 mins of searching I got a strong gold tone. It was already a bit deeper than I expected with the wind blown sand but I was able to gently recover it and give it back to a very happy Erica while her friends looked on. Erica, I truly wish you all the best in your future endeavors and thank you for your future service.
