FORT CARSON, Colo. (AP) Officials at Fort Carson are investigating reports a soldier deliberately avoided 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 a picture posted to Instagram accompanied by a disrespectful comment. The story was first reported by the Army Times.

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