In bad taste? This photo of 15 airmen posing with an open casket has resulted in an Air Force investigation.
Air Force commanders are investigating the origins of a photo of airmen posing around an open casket with another airman inside pretending to be dead.
In the photo, which has elicited disbelief and outrage from military commanders, military wives and widows, and others, 15 airmen are seen kneeling or standing around a metallic casket, similar to those used to carry war dead home. In the open casket is another airman, looking lifeless, with what appears to be a noose around his neck and chains across his body.
