Colorado soldier accused of avoiding flag salute

FORT CARSON — Officials at Fort Carson in Colorado are investigating reports a soldier posted a photo on Instagram of herself deliberately avoiding saluting the flag.

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.

The investigation involves the photo and the accompanying comment that the soldier is hiding to avoid saluting the flag. The story was first reported by the Army Times. Fort Carson spokeswoman Dani Johnson said Sheffey wasn’t available for comment.

Fort Carson officials said Wednesday they will continue to educate soldiers on standards and discipline and appropriate professional conduct on social media.
