(Newser) – Kimberly Vaughn is getting some serious help—or at least good wishes—as she looks for her lost wedding ring. Vaughn's husband, Aaron, was a Navy SEAL killed in August when the Taliban shot down a helicopter in Afghanistan. Kimberly noticed her ring was missing on Oct. 1—the problem is that she started out at a hotel in Deer Park, Texas, that morning and ended up in Washington, DC, after boarding two flights. The silver ring, with "Kimberly" engraved inside, could be anywhere in between. Her Facebook page has registered more than 10,000 "likes" this week as the story goes viral, notes the Army Times.
