Painted Rock tribute to America’s protectors

Some people change the world in very small ways. Ray Sorensen did just that.

There is a huge rock near a gravel pit on Hwy. 25 in rural Iowa. For quite some time kids have painted slogans, names, and obscenities on the rock, changing its character to fit the times.

A while back, the rock received its latest paint job. Since then it has been undisturbed.
