Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller rose to internet stardom by posting a video slamming the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, the officer who went viral for blasting the military’s leadership amid the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, has been sent to the brig, according to a report.
