The parents of Marine Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Schiller, who was jailed last month after criticizing military leaders from Afghanistan, are demanding the resignations of General Mark Millie and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.
In an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingram, the parents reportedly confirmed that Schiller had been sent to jail even after posting criticism of her seniors on social media.
Shelar gained notoriety for refusing to remain silent during the Biden administration’s catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan, which killed one service member in a suicide bombing and left countless American Taliban-held countries behind.
Schiller’s father objected to his son’s imprisonment, saying “my son is the only one being blamed by the generals for this misfortune.”
The Marine Corps assures Schiller that “all due process will be carried out.”
Marine officer Stuart Schiller has been relieved of responsibility for the video.

Ingram started the segment by playing a clip of General Mark Millie, who insisted he would not resign because of the defeat in Afghanistan.
“It would be unbelievable for a commissioned officer to simply resign politically because my advice was not accepted,” Millie said, referring to the demands he told President Biden that maintaining a troop presence was necessary for the withdrawal. Prank
Shelley’s senior did not agree.
“When Stuart broke the chain of command, General Mackenzie and General Millie and Secretary Austin broke the chain of trust and confidence of the American people,” Schiller’s father said in an interview.
“For that, they should be embarrassed,” he added. “That’s why they should resign.”
Sheller’s mother agrees and demands the release of her son.
“We want them to resign and we want to release Stuart,” his mother said.
“We want his pension to be re-established and his hard-earned medical facilities which he will need after his many deployments,” he added. “If they don’t, at least let him go and get him out of the Marines.”
A few days after his original video went viral and he was released from command, Shelley announced that he was resigning from his commission and retiring from a 2 2 million pension after 17 years of service.

Schiller’s father noted that Millie, Austin and any other officers have yet to face any reckoning for what happened – which the Marines initially claimed from their seniors.
“Our son has called for accountability. I don’t think they have been held accountable during today’s hearing, “said her father. “I’m extremely disappointed.”
He also questioned the duration of Schiller’s imprisonment.
“It simply came to our notice then [Stuart Jr] And they put him in jail the day before he appeared before the senators – and in front of the congressmen tomorrow, “he complained.
“I think it’s fairly cowardly.”
“I expected it. I ran out of tears, ”said Kathy Schiller, who learned that her son, Lt. Col. Stuart Schiller, had been arrested Monday.
“I have accepted his reason. I will do my best not to make it disappear. ”Https://t.co/wMIhgREiC2

Schiller’s mother claims the Marine has been held in solitary confinement and has not yet been given a trial date.
While testifying in Congress on Tuesday, Senator Josh Howley asked Austin about the status of Schiller’s imprisonment.
Austin replied that “he has no definite information as to the reason for his detention before trial” but that he “must ask the Marines to provide that insight.”
