POWs Ring Returns
This Friday, Aug. 16, 2013 photo taken in Raleigh, N.C., shows memorabilia from U.S. Army Air Corps 2nd Lt. David C. Cox's military service during World War II, including his portrait and photos of members of his B-17 crew. Cox traded his gold aviator ring for a couple of chocolate bars while he was imprisoned in a German prisoner of war camp. The ring was returned to Cox's son David Cox Jr. by a German couple through some investigative help from an American neighbor. (AP Photo/Gerry Broome)
