  • INSTAGRAM: Photo taken in NLR causing stir

The Wisconsin National Guard is reviewing how Guard members in training in North Little Rock came to stage what's apparently 'joke' photos of soldiers with a flag-covered coffin. They posted the photos on Instagram. 

NPR reports. 

In one, 14 soldiers are seen joking around in front of what authorities say was an empty coffin draped with the American flag. The caption with that image reads, in part: "We put the FUN in funeral."

In the other, the soldier who put the pictures on the Web is seen in uniform. The caption with that photo reads: "It's so damn cold out....WHY have a funeral outside !? Somebody's getting a jacked up flag."
