Show Notes

On this episode of Pilsners and Politics, Benjamin sits down with the parents of Lt. Colonel Scheller, Cathy and Stu Sr.

Cathy and Stu discuss with Benjamin the incredible story of courage and sacrifice surrounding their sons choice to demand accountability from the senior leaders at the Pentagon.  Lt. Col Scheller ultimately lost everything, his command, his marriage, and ability to serve his nation as a Marine. To this day the Marines are holding the Lt. Col. hostage and refusing to discharge him from the Marine Corps. Visit https://istandwithstu.com/ to sign the petition. 

Marine Corps Lt. Col Scheller, in a series of social media posts, demanded accountability from senior military leaders regarding the botched Afghanistan withdrawal. A withdrawal that was hasty and seemed to have  lacked strategic planning.

Because of incompetent senior leaders, and an administration that seemed to be solely focused on exiting Afghanistan; On August 26th, 2021, America lost 13 hero's. The group of service members lost  includes 11 Marines, one Army soldier and one member of the Navy.
