BLUEWATER BAY, Fla. (AP) - An 81-year-old northwest Florida man is missing a ring that he says saw him through three tours of duty in Vietnam and a long journey back to the woman who gave it to him.

The Northwest Florida Daily News (http://bit.ly/1aljQc5 ) reports Dominick Careccia believes the gold and ruby ring fell off his finger on Jan. 7 outside the Winn-Dixie in Bluewater Bay. He’s hoping someone will return it to him.

Careccia says the ring was a gift from a young Greek woman named Liza in January 1960. They had met at a beach party shortly before he was leaving his post in Athens to go to Vietnam.

He eventually returned to Greece and convinced the woman to marry him. He lost the ring one month shy of their 34th anniversary.
