RINGGOLD, GA (WRCB) -- Ryan Enos expected to celebrate Memorial Day like most families, with food, fun, and some time by the pool.

Instead, he found himself in a rocky situation.

The U.S. Army veteran says Monday morning while doing yard work he discovered big chunks of rocks in his back yard, most of which were right next to his swimming pool.

The vandals not only dumped dozens of rocks in the water, but they also damaged the side of the pool.

Enos paid $4,000 for the pool about a year ago. He says it will take about half of that to fix dents and replace the lining.

Enos says the woods behind his home have dirt bike trails that many people use during the day. It's also a clear pathway to his back yard.

He says recently his two young children had an incident with some kids from a nearby neighborhood.

Enos normally takes this day to reflect on his time in the service.

He says now he has to think about how he is going to empty out his pool and why someone would target him.

Now he is reaching out to his friends and neighbors asking them to be on the lookout.

Enos is offering a reward to anyone with any information.
