Soldier Hides to Avoid Saluting Flag, Brags About It on Instagram

   

By Douglas Ernst, The Washington Times

A solider has infuriated the online military community by posting a picture of herself on Instagram hiding in her car to avoid saluting the flag during retreat ceremony, which signals the end of duty for the day.

An Instagram picture of Pfc. Tariqka Sheffey has gone viral. Her post reads:

“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.”



Pfc. Sheffey is a member of the 59th Quartermaster Company, 43rd Sustainment Brigade, at Fort Carson, Colo., post spokeswoman Dee McNutt confirmed Tuesday, the Army Times reported.

What a fine young American Patriot.  I'm sure she's among the many females who have absolutely no interest in an actual combat job too.

If this E3 with a made up name is stupid enough to post this to public social media, she is stupid enough to get kicked out of the service.

I remember my first time home while in the Navy in full uniform walking around the Western WA State Fair when from the show grandstand  came the  National Anthem as they were about to start a rodeo or concert. Now I was not in the grandstand, but I stood at attention regardless and faced in the direction of the music and saluted.  I did fell a bit awkward like I was standing out a bit,  and I could have easily ignored the music and walk on with my friends, but I didn’t care. I felt it was the right thing to do and still do.

This girl is a pathetic coward, and her parents should be ashamed she is making light of it.

She IS Obama's military.  Heaven help us.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
