My boyfriend and I recently had a house fire and lost everything. But, we were at my parents and actually had two of our prized possessions with us- the watch his mom gave him and the necklace he bought me for our pre-engagement.
That is so sad, I hope whoever buys it gives it back to him, I guess my camera's the thing that I have that's worth the most money, but my raggedy ann doll is the most valuable thing to me but no one would even pay a penny for her ,the dog chewed off her face and she's bald besides.
does it make me a terrible person if my most important possesion is my most valuable possession and my most valuable possession is the one item that will generate the most money if sold? Which is my car ... or maybe a white gold diamond ring (that was gifted to me from a close family friend years ago)?
That's super sad. Bummer for that guy, but kudos to him also for doing what he's gotta do. My most prized possession isn't a possession at all, it's my son. But I guess if I had to choose one MATERIAL possession as my most prized, I'd probably pick my knitting needles and yarn stash. Maybe it's stupid, but I'm lost without something crafty to do.
I know this sounds terrible but It's a tie between my collection of Harry Potter books or a stuffed animal I've had since I was five (Moose!). No matter what's happened to me and no matter where i go these items are always with me and they're like baby blankets. They hold all the tears I ever shed over stupid boys and arguments with my family and I'd feel awkward without them.
It's a federal crime to traffic in U.S. military medals under to the Stolen Valor Act of 2005. The man is a brazen and wanton criminal and shouldn't be pitied. He's thumbing his nose at the rule of law and the American people through his heinous actions.
Probably my engagement ring. It's very unique and beautiful, and apparently my fiance had a very hard time tracking down one he knew I liked. He won't tell me the full story til after we get married. =P
Wait a minute, as far as I know those medals are like $20 or less. Heck, I've bought several of my medals after I misplaced them, they aren't expensive at all. What is valuable is your DD214 which lists your medals. I think he's ripping people off! After he gets his $3K he can go back to an army installation and replace that medal. At any rate, I hope he finds a job!
That is sad, but he should be able to get another one; I didn't get my National Defense Service medal for some reason so I took my DD214 papers up to the army/navy surplus and showed them I was authorized to wear it and they gave me one. I'm sure the one he was decorated with has great sentimental value though.
He exchanged something that symbolised enslavement to the American military for the good of his family. That's not something to feel sad over, his actions should be applauded as for once in his life common sense prevailed and he got his priorities right. My most valuable possession? My point of view and if it shocks the indoctrinated 'sheep' out there across the pond and makes them think for a second, then I'm happy.
