It’s been such a pleasure to watch the artistry of Ray Sorensen transform a grey boulder into an impressive memorial to some of the heroes of Dallas County, Iowa.
The five Wilson brothers were on a preliminary sketch for a fund-raising flyer. Minburn Legion Post 99 made application to host an official Freedom Rock, painted by Iowa artist Ray Sorensen. Legion posts across the county helped to raise funds for it.
Ray Sorensen began work on the boulder in mid-July, 2019.
The terrible sacrifice of this ordinary Iowa family will never be forgotten. Five sons enlisted. Only two came home.
The Dallas County Freedom Rock will be dedicated at 10:00 October 19, Minburn, Iowa. It’s right along Highway 169, just south of the Nineteen 14, which is at 210 4th Street. Handicapped parking will be at the parking lot for the restaurant.
