Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller‘s case would not be worthy of consideration.

It takes an individual with special character to take a stance and then when called on it decide speaking up wasn’t the only solution resigning from the Marine Corps., added the perfect touch.

I’ve been making contact with people to make inquiries on the legality or his losing his command. It seems all political to me.

From his point of view, this would never have happened if our military had a functional commander-in-chief.

Time to shoot of a letter to a Republican member of the U.S. Senate so that his plight can be brought to light.

I’m thinking the bull dog Jim Jordan even though he is a member of the House would destroy Pelosi is she objected.

A US Marine Corps veteran who was relieved of his command for chastising his bosses over the botched Afghan withdrawal has decided to call it quits.

Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, who came under fire after the bombastic post last week, said on YouTube Sunday that he’s sticking by his guns and resigning his commission — walking away from a $2 million pension after 17 years of military service.

“I could stay in the Marine Corps for another three years, but I don’t think that’s the path I’m on,” Scheller said.

“I’m resigning my commission as a United States Marine effective now.

“I am forfeiting retirements, all entitlements, I don’t want a single dollar,” he said. “I don’t want any money from the VA. I don’t want any VA benefits. I’m sure I’m entitled 100 percent.”

The video, titled “Your Move,” shows Scheller sitting in front of a chessboard in an abandoned school bus near his home in North Carolina.

He said he has been overwhelmed by the show of support.

Scheller explained that despite being relieved of command was still an active Marine — until he completes his resignation.

He said his decision was sparked in part by a former commander who wrote on Linkedin that he should resign his commission “‘if he was honorable.’

“All the noise out there that one comment has just played through my head,” he said.

Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller criticized military leadership for abandoning the Bagram air base earlier in July.

“All I asked for was accountability of my senior leaders when there are clear, obvious mistakes that were made,” he said.

“I’m not saying we can take back what has been done. All I asked for was accountability, for people to comment on what I said and to say, ‘yes, mistakes were made.’

“And had I done that I would’ve gone back into rank and file, submitted, and accomplished what I wanted,” Scheller said.

He said he does not want donations from supporters, but suggested that any fundraising that does happen should go to his wife.

“I want to be clear that I love the Marine Corps,” he added.

“To all the Congressmen, Senators, every media station across the globe, all the rich philanthropists, I appreciate your support and I’m gonna need your support,” he said.

“Follow me, and we will bring the whole f—ing system down,” he said. “We’re just getting started.”

In a brief interview with The Post over the weekend, Scheller also said he had only sought accountability for the Afghan withdrawal.

    An officer just doesn’t say he resigns, then leaves.Resignations don’t just happen on the spot. They have to be accepted and a discharge processed by higher command. Lt Col Scheller isn’t without sympathizers there who have no intention of letting him go. George Patton went through a similar episode in the 1930s.

    So we shall see.
