Owner of Missing Marine Corps Ring Sought

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - Many people come to Las Vegas looking for treasure. For Las Vegas resident Geri Hart and her son, however, treasure was the last thing they expected to find, especially at a local fast food restaurant.

"They came home and said they had found this ring at the Burger King, and he was on a mission to try and find out who it was," Geri said.

The ring bears a red stone in the center, a U.S. Marine Corps emblem on top and two significant places and dates etched on the sides.

"It has ‘Tun Tavern 1775', and the other side is ‘Iwo Jima 1945'," Geri said.

She and her son tried to find the owner by placing ads online, but no one responded.

They reached out to the Marine Corps, but again never received a response. A few days ago, Geri's son's efforts came to an end as he shipped off to boot camp.

Geri says her family's support for the U.S. military is the reason they are so passionate about finding the ring's rightful owner. Not only does Geri's son serve, her father and grandfather are also military veterans. They believe in the military, and they believe they can reunite this ring with its owner.

"I really hope we can find who belongs… who owns this ring," she said. "I think our service members give so much and sacrifice so much, and I know if it was my father's ring or my uncle's or my dad's ring, I would want it. It's priceless."

Geri has the ring in a safe location. If you think you are the rightful owner of the ring, call 8 on Your Side at 702-650-1907 or email us.
