Ray 'Bubba" Sorensen is a talented artist and student at Iowa State. Ray is the type of guy that believes doing something is more important than sitting home in front of a game console or complaining that work is too hard or life owes him something. He loves to exercise his gift. Having a talent and natural ability to share his mind's eye with a paintbrush in hand, Ray embarked on a special project in his hometown, sharing his patriotism and love of country with the rest of his community with a brush and a few gallons of paint.

Remembering why we honor their sacrifice this Memorial Day

The following video was made by Major Mark Zinno, of radio station 105.7 in Baltimore. He is currently deployed and serving in Iraq.
