(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)- After a second act of vandalism to the VA's transport van in less than a month, the service is done. 

Due to the act of vandalism, the VA can't provide transport services anymore because they can't identify who or why it's being vandalized. 

"I dont know if they have a greivence against the VA or the national goverment, but we cant park the goverment vehicle downtown because its going to be destroyed," Volunteer driver David Moyers said.

Moyers served in the U.S. Navy for 23 years and drives fellow veterans to medical appointments.

"I dont drive, I don't have a car," U.S. Air Force veteran Glen Mize said. "It affects more than just me it affects a lot of people that use the facility."

"It saddens me that we have people in the community that want to destroy something like this," Moyers said.

It will be a cold start to the work week, with cloudy skies and below average highs in the low-to-mid 50s for northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. Tuesday and Wednesday a cold front will move in and give us a chance for rain and t-storms. As the warm front moves in and remains stationary it will spark rain/storm chances Wednesday through Thursday. Thursday will be the warmest day of the week with a high in the upper 70s. A cold front moves back in Friday returning highs to the low 50s for the weekend.
