Local Good Samaritan reunites veteran with US Army ring on Veterans Day


GREENBRIER, Ark. – A Greenbrier woman reunites with a veteran with his missing U.S. military ring this Veterans Day.

“We were just going to the store to watch video games,” Meghin Boggs said. “I looked down and the gem caught my eye…it was a blue sparkle.”

The ring had a bump when Boggs found it, it looked like it had been crushed.

“Today is Veterans Day,” Boggs said. “I thought maybe someone was trying to put it on or wear it.”

Aaron Sisseck is a US Army veteran who said he lost his ring on Veterans Day morning in Conway.

“It’s so sad because I probably ran my own ring…I’m glad no one stole it,” Sisseck said. “It’s like thrown away.”

After Boggs found the ring, she took to Facebook, creating a post to try and find the owner.

Sisseck said he didn’t even notice the ring wasn’t on his finger until his wife saw this message.

The couple quickly messaged Boggs and proved ownership of the ring to claim it.

“Everything I ever got from the military I kept,” Sisseck said. The only thing I ever had that I wore was my tags and my ring.

Sisseck said the ring brought back memories of his service in the military and he was trying to focus on the good ones.

“I had it done just as a reminder of accomplishments,” he said. “You can have ribbons and you can have medals, but I’m not going to wear all those things every day.”

It’s Sisseck’s first Veterans Day since retiring from the military in May after serving for five years.

“I really broke my back and hit the side of my head falling off a cliff,” he said.

Sisseck said he had to retire due to injuries.

He takes the ring to a jeweler to try to fix the dent in the ring so he can wear it again. Sisseck said he was grateful to Boggs not only for finding him, but also considering how important it would be to return him to a veteran one day who honors his service.
