  • I love it every year. It's to celebrate our veterans who fought on the ground. Got no sleep, didn't eat right, wore down their bodies, all for us. For the freedom that we are allotted. Why wouldn't I go commemorate that.
  • This was the smallest place with the most amazing painted rock I've ever seen! He paints it differently every year around Memorial Day. Can't wait to stop again.
  • Incredibly beautiful. The talent is just outstanding. Great tribute to the vets.
  • Amazing!! Each year this rock is painted with amazing images showing the utmost respect! We make it an annual event to drive from Omaha & travel on to Dexter IA to Drew's chocolates & have dinner @ the Rusty Duck.
  • Beautiful stop along our roadside adventure. This changes every year.
