Objectivity 4.3 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.1

U.S. Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller Jr. was issued a letter of reprimand and a forfeiture of $5,000 worth of pay for one month after pleading guilty to charges during his court-martial hearing this week. Scheller posted videos on social media criticizing military leadership and the Biden administration’s withdrawal of military assets from Afghanistan. Many say the decorated Marine who served 17 years was simply speaking the truth and holding those above him accountable for their actions.
