This photo exhibiting some atrocious dark humor by National Guardsmen was posted by a member of the Wisconsin National Guard with the caption, “We put the fun back in funeral-your fearless honor guard from various states” The casket was empty.
A female Guard posted this and another photo on her private social media account, Instagram. The account has since been shut down.
In another photo, she is seen holding a folded flag with the caption, “It’s so damn cold out. Why have a funeral outside? Somebody’s getting a jacked up flag.”
The matter is being investigated. The female officer, who appears to be in the Honor Guard, is receiving death threats.
IS won’t publish her name.
The National Guard posted the following message on its Facebook page Monday night:
“It has come to the attention of the Wisconsin National Guard that a soldier may have posted inappropriate pictures and comments regarding their duties as a member of a Funeral Honor Guard. We are currently looking into the matter. Thank you.”
