Lt Col Scheller is an infantry officer with an exemplary career of five deployments and multiple senior awards including a Bronze Star, Army Commendation with “V” for Valor, 3 Meritorious Service Medals, 3 Navy Commendations. With 17 years in the Corps, Stu was just a few years away from retirement with a pension and benefits awaiting him, but none of that mattered more than doing what is right – demanding accountability.
Being a Veteran of War and a believer in the military code that says I have to follow direct orders UNLESS they are either illegal or immoral. This Marine is exempt from punishment because the gag order was both immoral (to keep him from appearing in court in a case AGAINST the US GOV) and illegal according the Constitution of The United States of America.
I completely support LTC Scheller. Please listen in to this podcast, which also includes the parents of this brave Marine on an interview with Laura Ingraham.
