Scheller’s Parents to Newsmax: Fighting Military to Drop His Gag Order

Stuart Scheller, Sr., and Cathy Scheller, the parents of Marine Corps Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller Jr., said Wednesday on Newsmax that they’re still fighting for their son’s rights and called on the military to hold up their end of the plea bargain it reached with him and to lift its gag order and allow him to speak out. 

“Our son is a warrior,” his father told Newsmax’s “Wake Up America.” “He’s been in worse situations. He can handle it and he tells us he’s going to come out stronger and I have no doubt and that’s probably why our government wants to continue to hold him and not release him.”

Scheller has pleaded guilty for posting videos online that were critical of top military commanders for the way they handled the withdrawal from Afghanistan.
