Soldier's selfie sparks outrage Published: February 26, 2014

A "selfie" photograph of a Fort Carson soldier who said she was hiding in her car to avoid saluting the flag went viral Tuesday, angering a lot of people and possibly prompting an investigation by her chain of command.

Pfc. Tariqka Sheffey posted the image to her Instagram account with a caption that read, "This is me laying back in my car hiding so I don't have to salute the 1700 flag, KEEP ALL YOUR 'THATS SO DISRESPECTFUL/HOWRUDE/ETC.' COMMENTS TO YOURSELF cuz, right now, IDGAFFFF."
