Hero Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller Jr. Reprimanded, Sentenced to Forfeiture of $5,000 for Viral Criticism of Afghanistan Withdrawal

A military court issued a letter of reprimand to Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller Jr. on Friday and a forfeiture of $5,000 for criticizing the United States’ departure from Afghanistan. The sentence came after Scheller entered a guilty on Thursday to six misdemeanor charges of violating the Uniform Code of Military Justice. The $5,000 forfeiture in pay represented a month’s earnings for Scheller and came in far short of the recommendation from military prosecutors, who called for a six-month forfeiture.
