UPDATE: ODOT reunites Vietnam veteran hat with owner

LIMA, OH (WTOL) - After putting out a call for action on social media, ODOT announced it has reunited a veteran with his Vietnam War ball cap on Thursday.

"We are excited to tell you we have learned who the owner of the hat is, and he's a local veteran. Stay tuned tomorrow for the reunion," a Tweet from the department read.

The Ohio Department of Transportation earlier Thursday asked for the public's help in finding the owner of a Vietnam veteran hat.

ODOT said a bridge inspector found the hat on I-75 over State Route 81 in Lima on Wednesday.

The hat had Purple Heart and 1st Air Cavalry pins on it.
