The Last Ring Home

The Last Ring Home

The Last Ring Home is the story of courage, love and honor of a WWII hero, Lt Minter Dial, who won the Navy Cross, and was killed as a prisoner of war of the Japanese in January 1945. Son of a Senator and married to an aspiring actress, he became a Navy officer, captaining the USS Napa at the outbreak of war. Captured at Corregidor, he survived 2.5 years as a POW in the Philippines, only to be killed in the most gruesome conditions. Just before dying, he handed his Annapolis ring to a fellow prisoner, but it was lost in the ensuing chaos. Then the ring reappears many years later under the most improbable of circumstances. The Last Ring Home documents the ring's magical journey and the impact that it has had on so many people along the way.
