A photo posted on Instagram that appeared to show a soldier deliberately avoiding saluting the flag touched off a military investigation and a storm of criticism.

Base officials issued a statement Wednesday saying they are aware of a social media post allegedly made by Pfc. Tariqka Sheffey indicating she stayed in her car to avoid a flag ceremony and they are looking into the situation.

Comments posted with the photo showing a female soldier in uniform relaxing in a car said, “This is me laying back in my car hiding so I don’t have to salute the (5 p.m. flag ceremony).”

Her comments also told people to keep any angry responses to themselves. The story was first reported by the Army Times.  The initial post was later taken down.
