“All our son did is ask the questions that everybody was asking themselves, but they were too scared to speak out loud,” Scheller’s father, Stu Scheller Sr., told Task & Purpose last week. “He was asking for accountability. In fact, I think he even asked for an apology that we made mistakes, but they couldn’t do that, which is mind-blowing.”

The outspoken officer was three years from having the ability to retire when he was relieved of his command and put into confinement whereas awaiting trial for contempt.


“My son is an exemplary Marine and he has been for 17 years,” Scheller’s mom, Cathy Scheller, advised Fox News final week. “He knew that everyone else felt the same way. He thought if he took the lead, others would stand up and call for accountability. They did not. So he is taking the full brunt himself.”

Scheller, his Defense counsel, and the Commanding General, Training Command,” mentioned Capt.
