Wisconsin Soldiers Posing With Military Casket Spark Outrage
As we've seen in the 21st century, if you put it online it could bite you in the butt. The butt-biting is in full swing for a group of National Guard soldiers in Wisconsin.
Whether it's photos posing with Iraqi prisoners, sending an inappropriate text or a controversial tweet, once it's online it's online forever. Even if that tweet is only posted for 30-seconds before you regret it and pull it down, somebody gets a screen cap of it and you're toast. That means one bad decision could live with you for the rest of your life. The thought that you can learn a lot about people when they think no one is around to see certainly holds true when a picture taken amongst a small group of co-workers or friends go viral.
The account that posted the picture on Facebook, a Wisconsin soldier, shows several soldiers goofing around while posing with a flag-draped military casket. The caption in the photo reads, "We put the 'fun' in funeral". Whether it was done in "good fun" doesn't matter in this case. Respect is something you'd think military members would show for their fallen comrades, as they'd expect the same from their brothers and sisters in uniform.
