This "Trike" owned by a Vet, on display at a car show, check the power plant he used, it should haul . The work and thought that went into the paint job is priceless.















Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you.
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G.I.
"One died for your soul, the other for your freedom!"
You might want to pass this on, As many seem to forget both of them!

Freedom Rock: Veterans Memorial
Thanks to one inspired teenager and the man he's become, a granite boulder in Iowa draws survivors together in grief, pride, and remembrance of fallen veterans.


http://www.dailyyonder.com/freedom-rock-veterans-memorial-times-ten

This year is the 10th anniversary of Ray (Bubba) Sorensen's patriotic tribute on the prairie. For the last decade, he's painted the huge boulder that was once a teen graffiti catcher, wrapping it with thanks to U.S. servicemen and women.
The 12-foot boulder isn't going anywhere. In fact nobody seems to know when or how a chunk of granite weighing 56 tons made it from the Schillberg Rock Quarry out to a spot next to Highway 25. What they do know is that the rock is magnetic now. It draws people by the thousands to this lonely place in Central Iowa each year.
Grieving friends, veterans of the Korean War, curiosity seekers, bikers from California, and tourists from Sweden -- they come by the ones and fives and, on Memorial Day, by the hundreds, to stand at Freedom Rock.
