2-20-14 second guard member suspended over photo

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A second Wisconsin National Guard member has been suspended in an investigation stemming from a photograph showing soldiers clowning around by an empty flag-draped casket. Guard spokesman Major Paul Rickert says today that Sergeant Luis Jimenez was suspended because of comments he posted on social media defending the photo. Jimenez' comments have since been taken down, but in a screen shot confirmed by Rickert he defended the woman who originally posted the photo.
