Why are there so few Standing Rock veteran human shield pics on the interwebz?


2,000 military veterans have gone to Standing Rock in North Dakota to protect pipeline protesters.  As a cultural phenomenon this is a pretty big deal.  Military service members do not usually find themselves in the same orbit as people protesting the treatment of Native Americans and pipeline protesters.

When I googled images of the human shield I found one picture and it did not encompass the importance of this happening and I don’t think there’s any coincidence that there are no images of this happening.
