WISCONSIN (PIX11) — A member of the Wisconsin National Guard has been suspended after a picture showing soldiers joking around an empty, flag-draped casket.

The photo was posted on an Instagram account belonging to specialist Terry Harrison.

The caption reads, “We put the ‘fun’ in funeral.”

According to the National Guard, more than 900 military families have complained about the photo.
