Photo showing firefighters covered by American flags creates controversy

This photo posted on a Facebook tribute page to the Granite Mountain Hotshots last Thursday has sparked a lot of controversy.

You're looking at the bodies of the 19 fallen firefighters from the Yarnell Hill Fire. Instead of covering them with tarps they are covered with American flags. An honor guard draped the body bags while getting ready to remove them from the scene.

The picture is the source of debate over whether it should have been posted.

Does this picture offend you or were you touched by it?
