Suzanne Davis Rogers
She decided to find the rightful owner of the ring and turned to social media for help. Rogers posted photos of the ring to Facebook, asking her friends to help out with finding its original owner. “I’m hoping to find the owner before we leave this week,” she said in the post. Little did she know, that her post would go viral in a matter of days. Amongst the many comments on the status, one of the replies was from someone who apparently was a coworker of the Marine who it belonged to. Rogers came into contact with the supposed Marine, who was named Jaime Andrade. They talked for a few days, as the woman just wanted to make sure that this was his ring. He made the claim that after his graduation, he visited that same Siesta Key beach, and left the ring by his sandals as he went into the water—he couldn’t find it when he got back. She even contacted members of the platoon, who mostly claimed they didn’t know who this Andrade was. But then, Rogers found out that the Marine was technically supposed to graduate on June 30th, the date on the ring, but unforeseen circumstances led to him graduating weeks later. Rogers came to the conclusion that it was, indeed, Andrade’s ring. Soon after, Rogers and her husband met up with Andrade in Siesta, and they gave him back what was his. The ring was finally back in its proper place. And even after the ordeal, Andrade became good friends with the couple. Everything happens for a reason; perhaps Andrade was meant to lose his ring on that day. And because of it, he has two new friends who most certainly have his back.
