A Wisconsin National Guardsman has been suspended after images of her and fellow soldiers disrespecting the funerals they were assigned to cover as members of the honor guard were posted on a social media site.

“We put the FUN in funeral” Spc. Terry Harrison wrote in an Instagram post showing a group of soldiers engaging in silly poses in front of a flag-draped casket.

In another, the full-time honor guard member writes: “It’s so cold out…. WHY have a funeral outside!? Someone is getting a jacked up flag.”

Spc. Harrison, a member of the 1st Battalion, 147th Aviation Regiment, has been “indefinitely suspended,” said Guard spokesman Maj. Paul Rickert, according to USA Today.
