Facebook Photo at Unknown Soldier Tomb Sparks Controversy
A Massachusetts woman and her friend may lose their jobs over a Facebook post from the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. Lindsey Stone and Jamie Schuh have been placed on unpaid leave, for now. The picture shows Lindsey flipping the bird and appearing to scream at a sign that says “silence and respect” at the tomb. Some veterans say they are offended.
Both women work for a facility that provides care for disabled adults. Stone has been barraged by negative publicity since the picture appeared. There’s also a Facebook page devoted to getting her fired.
