A jeweler donated a new wedding band to a wounded soldier who lost his ring while being treated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in the District.
George Rue, the owner of Eagle Jewelers in Mount Airy, donated a simple gold wedding band to Cpl. Dennis Leonard, of the 72nd Engineer Company, 1st Infantry Division based at Fort Riley, Kan. Cpl. Leonard, 24, was wounded in Iraq on Jan. 12.
Cpl. Brian Ellis, originally from Mount Airy and Cpl. Leonard's close friend, said the lost ring was the first thing his wounded buddy mentioned when he visited him at the hospital. Cpl. Ellis told the story to his uncle, Ivan Betancourt of Mount Airy, who mentioned it to Mr. Rue.
Mr. Rue called Cpl. Leonard's wife, got a description of the ring and the proper size, and sent the couple a replacement last week.
