Police in a Wyoming town are looking for the culprits who vandalized a battlefield cross in honor of a fallen service member just days before Veterans Day on Nov. 11.

The monument, which was vandalized this week at Veterans Memorial Park outside City Hall in Riverton, was in honor of U.S. Army Command Sgt. Major Kevin Griffin who was killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan in 2012.

The Riverton police department said the incident  was a “purposeful act of disrespect to not only the monument, to the fallen Command Sergeant Major Griffin, but also to all of those who have served.”

Police said Friday that they have been in contact with Jim Arndt and Pat Lawson at the Veterans Hall in Riverton, who have pledged to repair the desecrated monument.

“Jim’s words: ‘We are going replace or repair. Thank you all as a veteran myself and one of many veterans here in Riverton that have put their heart and soul into this park. We are all sick over this act but we will repair the CSM Griffin Memorial,” Riverton PD said on Facebook, according to Oil City News.

Police said the battle cross, whose upper part was broken off, was vandalized on Thursday, Nov. 7
