Veteran's lost ring found after 41 years

A keepsake from the Vietnam War will be returned to an Iowa soldier who lost it in 1971 on the bottom of Iowa’s Lake Delhi. John Jones’ gold, 25th Infantry Division ring came off while swimming. Two years ago, after the dam broke and the lake drained, a Chicago treasure hunter found it under the muddy lake bottom, and a veterans official was able to trace it back to Jones, who lives in Cedar Rapids.

A story about a Vietnam Veteran losing his 25 Infantry Division ring and it's found more than forty years later.

IPRs Rick Fredericksen has the story.
