According to NY Daily News, Walker purchased an engagement ring anonymously for a soldier and his bride-to-be several years ago during the holidays.
According to CBS, Walker was in the store at the same time as the soldier, who had just come back from Iraq, and overheard him and his fiancée talking about a ring that they couldn't afford. That was when Walker called over the manager, told her to put it on his tab, and then he left.
The ring had a price tag of $10,000. At the time the couple did not know who purchased the ring for them.
The employees who were working that day kept the purchase a secret, but decided to tell the world about it because they thought it was the right time to share the inspirational story.
