Vandals have targeted a special resource built by veterans in the Valley. Now, a specially designed ambulance's wrap is ripped. The person or persons responsible, possibly taking knives and blow torches to the military honor.

Trinidy Currier is the owner of Emergency Medical Veterans Response. He said, he woke up early Friday morning to attend an event to honor our nation's heroes.

"I didn't really see the extent of the damage until... I got to ASU for the 9/11 Tribute Run," Currier explained. "I actually had a chance to look at it and see how much damage was actually done to it."

 The company provides medical aid, as well as works with the military on special projects. 

"We do youth football games, we do high school JV games, we do high school varsity games, we do some of the local concert venues around here," Currier listed off.

The wrap had  been completed just seven months earlier.  But, now - it is beyond repair.

"Wraps aren't really cheap," Currier nervously laughed. "They are about $4,500. $4,800 for this, in particular. It's completely ruined." 

Currier did start a GoFundMe page to help replace the trashed memorial. However, Desert Signs in Cave Creek has offered to design and also pay for a brand new wrap for the ambulance. Currier is in the process of contacting the people who donated through a GoFundMe account to give them their money back.
