Yes, they did.

I got one of the, now famous, rock emails today. If you haven't seen the work of Ray "Bubba" Sorensen II you want to check it out (and the Snopes entry saying TRUE). Every Memorial day, starting in 1999 he has repainted a rock on highway 25 in Iowa.

I have seen these before. For whatever reason, I had never read the rock. I guess I had seen but not looked. Here's the image:

In case you can't, or like me didn't, see it the caption reads:

All gave some. Some gave All.

Finding the original author (if you say Billy Ray Cyrus you get a free boot to the head) has proven difficult. There are many quotes, requotes, and reuse of this quote all over. I did see one attribution to a Korean war veteran, but nothing definite.
