Wow. HQMC is doing it by the book...they gave that LtCol a mental health screening...

 via Military.com

Scheller was removed from command of the Advanced Infantry Training Battalion at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, on Friday following his first video "due to a loss of trust and confidence in his ability to command," according to Maj. Jim Stenger, a spokesman for the Marine Corps.

Monday afternoon, in a post to what appeared to be his LinkedIn profile, Scheller said that he "was ordered by my commanding officer to go to the Hospital for a mental health screening."

"I was evaluated by the mental health specialists and then sent on my way," he added in the post.

Scheller reiterated that he is "moving forward with my resignation."

Military.com reached out to Scheller and others who appeared to have served with him in the Marines for comment and perspective, and confirmation on the events he described. Scheller did not reply. Several current and former Marines declined to comment. One said, "I don't think it's safe for me to comment at this time."

Sunday's 10-minute video, posted to LinkedIn and YouTube, has a decidedly different tone from his first message, which was widely shared on social media in the military community.

Instead of sitting in an office setting in uniform, Scheller is dressed in civilian clothes and seated in "an abandoned school bus in eastern North Carolina" with a chessboard set up in the foreground. The video also has a darker tone, with Scheller less focused on calls for accountability and instead making declarations, often shouting, about his career and Marine leadership.

Scheller claims that, in exchange for his silence, he could have spent three years at another posting until he was eligible for retirement.

"I don't think that's the path I'm on," he declared.

At several points in the video, Scheller also intimates that he has plans for senior officers in the military, using threatening language.

"When I am done with what I'm about to do, you all are going to need the jobs and the security," Scheller said in his second video.


This dude has been snapped.

"When I am done with what I'm about to do".

He actually said that?

Yeah.  He's broken bad.  Hope he gets help...hope he gets better.

Note.  Talking shit to your boys behind closed doors is one thing, but to be an Officer Of Marines and doing this PFC shit is something else entirely.
