  • CONTROVERSIAL PHOTO: It has led to a suspension in Arkansas.
The Arkansas National Guard has announced that a member of the Arkansas Guard has been suspended for taking part in a joke photograph featuring an empty flag-draped casket. The photo, posted on social media, was taken at a training course at Camp Robinson in North Little Rock.

Citing an ongoing investigation and concern for the safety of the soldier, the Guard member's name wasn't released. Adjutant General William D. Wofford termed the incident, in which Guard members from a number of states participated, was "deplorable."
