A couple of photos recently came to my attention. Each seems to use U.S. military personnel in uniform to push a practice, social cause or agenda.
Many in America will see these two photos as harmless, but not everyone shares today's American values.
Critics go bonkers when some soldier is snapped in a pic posed with a corpse on a battlefield or with an incarcerated Muslim, but photos like this might just as likely provoke a violent Muslim backlash against U.S. troops.
If you're in the military or know someone who is, think before you exploit the uniform and the service it represents. And think doubly hard before publishing or posting questionable content on the web.
