Ray Hazelwood and his Citadel rings - photo by Glenn Tucker
Ray Hazelwood still recalls the day in 1973 when his cherished class ring from The Citadel vanished. Hazelwood, who graduated from the military college in 1967, was at work at the family dry cleaning business in Camden seven years after completing his degree in Charleston. He took the ring off to wash his hands, laying it on the lavatory.
