Patriot Rock

From e-mail forwarded to me by my aunt Fredna in Michigan (forwarded to her by her daughter-in-law who was one of the original recipients from one Patty Nelson). Here's the mail and the pictures that accompanied it:
There is a huge rock near a gravel pit on Hwy.25 in rural Iowa. For generations, kids have painted slogans, names, and obscenities on this rock, changing its character many times. A few months back, the rock received its latest paint job, and since then it has been left completely undisturbed. It's quite an impressive sight. Be sure to scroll down and check out the multiple photos (all angles) of the rock. I thought the flag was draped over the rock, but it's not. It's actually painted on the rock too.
























That last photo is of the artist, Ray "Bubba" Sorenson, II.

Like the rock says, "Thank you veterans." And thanks to Fredna for forwarding these to me.

A little research: The guy's been doing this for several years. Here's his site. And here's a Google search on Ray "Bubba" Sorenson with quite a few write ups and links.

Comments:
God Bless the artist and we hope he continues to show his respect because we are so proud of the military. Thank You Bubba for being an artist and a wonderful person.
 
I'm going to join the army next week. I hope Bubba will join with me. I can tell by looking at this work he's really patriotic. We should all do our duty and fight for our freedoms.
