    I have passed this rock on the way to my relative's house in Greenfield, Iowa. I just happen to have my Camera with me this time. If you have not seen this before, it is a cool sight to see. The artist and his work have gotten great support and a great response from the community. Thought I would post some pics for those to see. It's nice to see someone take the time to do his own small part to honor all those who have served this country. It's also nice to see his work not get covered overe by graffiti as well. I guess if this was closer to a major city, that might not be so.
    Here is a link to the website as well.

    I'm sorry for the large size, I have not figured how to downsize the photos with the box around them to click on to enlarge them. There is a lot of detail in some of the photos, and when I compressed them, you lose most of the small details.

    U cant actually make them smaller with the box, the only way to do that is if u link the pictures from another source...

    If you want to downsize the pics Njaco, that is fine. Actually that is the same rock I believe. The artist has changed the design a few times.
