U.S. Marine Resigns Due To Lack of Trust in Leadership


A 17 year Marine has just resigned from the United States Marine Corps due to the fact he can no longer “trust” leadership.

US Marine Corps lieutenant Stuart Scheller in a letter posted on his LinkedIn account declared that he was resigning from the military due to the fact he no longer trusts or has confidence in leadership anymore.

Scheller a few days earlier before his resignation recorded a video of himself calling out senior leadership for not taking accountability for their actions.

Right after his video went viral, senior officials then relieved Scheller of his duties.

Here’s a post that was uploaded to LinkedIn by Scheller:

To The American Leadership,

We the people submit our resignation with a requested date of 11 September 2021.

Reason: Loss of trust and confidence.

We the people seek change. We the people seek leadership. We the people seek accountability. We the people WILL take it.

Every generation needs a revolution.

Very Respectfully,

The Guardian had more details to share regarding Scheller’s previous viral video:

A US Marine Corps lieutenant colonel who posted a video demanding accountability from military leaders over the evacuation of Afghanistan has been relieved of his duties and will leave US service, the marines and the officer involved said on Friday.

Stuart Scheller posted his video to Facebook and LinkedIn on Thursday, the day 13 US service members, 11 of them Marines, and reportedly as many as 170 Afghans, were killed in a suicide bomb attack at the airport in Kabul.

“I have been fighting for 17 years,” said Scheller, then commander of the advanced infantry training battalion. “I am willing to throw it all away to say to my senior leaders: ‘I demand accountability.’”

Scheller said he knew someone killed in Kabul, but was making his video “because I have a growing discontent and contempt for … perceived ineptitude at the foreign policy level, and I want to specifically ask some questions to some of my senior leaders.”
