September 10, 2015 was a noteworthy day in Corydon, Iowa. Ray “Bubba” Sorensen II came to town. Mr. Sorensen’s arrival had been anticipated for several months. He is the man who is traveling all over Iowa using his artistic talents to spread the message of thanking our veterans. Ray started this venture in 1999 when he painted a 60+ ton boulder in Adair, Iowa to honor the veterans of the United States of America. Bubba had no idea this labor of love would bring the response from the veterans that it did. Their response inspired Bubba to repaint the rock for Memorial Day every year and to start the Freedom Rock Tour. The goal of the tour is to put a Freedom Rock in all 99 counties in Iowa and when that goal is completed to have a Freedom Rock in every state. Thanks to the cooperation and donations of the citizens of Wayne County, Corydon now has its very own Freedom Rock. It sits on the southwest corner of the courthouse square, as a reminder of the cost of freedom and as a humble thank you to the men and women who sacrificed for the American way of life.
