Second National Guard soldier suspended over social media photo

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin National Guard spokesman, Major Paul Rickert, says a second soldier has been suspended from some duties as part of the investigation into inappropriate photos and comments on social media.

Sergeant Luis Jimenez remains a full-time guardsman, but he has been relieved of his funeral honors duties pending results of an investigation.

Major Rickert stated Jimenez posted comments on social media regarding the photo in question.  Spc. Terry Harrison originally posted the photo on Instagram, showing soldiers in goofy poses around a flag-draped casket. Harrison was suspended from funeral honors Tuesday.
