Fort Carson Completes Soldier Selfie Investigation

Fort Carson says they have completed their investigation into a controversial selfie, which went viral on social media platforms last month.

The caption on the photo, a closeup of a soldier in uniform identified as Tariqka Sheffey, stated she was hiding in her car to avoid saluting the American flag.

"This is me laying back in my car hiding so I don't have to salute the 1700 flag," the caption read.

The Mountain Post released a statement Friday about the investigation. It reads as follows:

"The investigation into the social media incident concerning a Fort Carson soldier is complete. The unit commander addressed the situation consistent with his authority. It is not the policy of the United States Army to disclose the results of administrative actions."
