Tonight we told the story of Kimberly Vaughn, the widow of Aaron Vaughn, a Navy SEAL who was killed during an August chopper crash in Afghanistan. Since his death, she has carried his wedding ring with her every day. Last weekend, the wedding ring slipped off her finger while traveling back from a family visit in Houston, Texas. In an interview with CNN affiliate, WTKR, Vaughn said, “my jaw dropped, my heart just fell to the floor, I felt like someone was standing on my chest…since my husband was killed in action on August 6th, I’ve been wearing his wedding band on my hand.”

Vaughn believes the ring slipped off her finger somewhere in transit between leaving her hotel and boarding one of her US Airways flights. If you have any information regarding the lost ring, you can contact Vaughn here.
