Honor Guard Photo Sparks Outrage
A recent post on social media has left a member of Wisconsin’s Honor Guard in a possible great deal of trouble. This is the second post she has made on social media that the military is considering out of line, and they are furthering their investigation into the matter. The girl posted the photo with the headline “We put the ‘fun’ in funeral”.
The Wisconsin National Guard has been part of Wisconsin’s Funeral Honor Guard for decades, but two pictures posted to social media by a Milwaukee member of the honor guard are sparking outrage.
WISN 12 News isn’t identifying the soldier in the pictures because she said she’s been receiving death threats after they went viral.
The Wisconsin National Guard confirmed to WISN 12 News it is launching an investigation into her social media account.
The first photo under scrutiny shows her with a folded flag in the background with the caption, “It’s so damn cold out. Why have a funeral outside? Somebody’s getting a jacked up flag.”
The second is from her recent graduation of training for honors at funerals.
