WISCONSIN–Photos taken around a flag-draped training casket have sparked controversy and an investigation.

WITI reports that the Wisconsin National Guard is looking into the photos posted on social media.

One of the photos shows a group of soldiers, including one from the Wisconsin Army National Guard, posing disrespectfully around the casket.

The caption reads: “We put the FUN in funeral — your fearless honor guard from various states.”

Spc. Terry Harrison — a member of the 1st Battalion, 147th Aviation Regiment based in Madison, Wisconsin– has been indefinitely suspended.
