After escaping Vietnamese poverty to further his education in the United States, a Bowling Green State University graduate and his family became the victims of a common thief while moving to Arizona.
An Nguyen, 29, earned his doctorate in American Culture Studies earlier this month and accepted a teaching position with Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. But while he, his wife Huong and their daughter made their way through the airport after arriving in Arizona, they discovered Huong's purse had been taken.
The bag contained both of their wedding rings, which had been placed inside for safekeeping while they passed through security. Also inside were an unspecified number of gift cards given to the couple at a baby shower several weeks ago, according to Dennis Gugger, pastor of Bowling Green Alliance Church, the parish attended by the Nguyens and which organized the shower. They had been members since September 2012.
Aside from the loss, the couple is getting settled in an apartment in Flagstaff, Gugger said.
