The US Marine who posted videos on social media ripping the military for the Biden administration’s botched pullout from Afghanistan has been issued a letter of reprimand and ordered to forfeit $5,000 worth of pay over one month.

Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller pleaded guilty at his court-martial hearing Thursday to six misdemeanor-level charges — including willfully disobeying a superior officer — and the judge for Scheller’s court-martial, Col. Glen Hines, ordered his punishment Friday.

Scheller now awaits a ruling on whether he’ll be honorably discharged from the Marines or given a general discharge under honorable conditions, said his lawyer Tim Parlatore.

“We’re very happy with the results,” Parlatore told The Associated Press. “The judge was very well reasoned as he considered all the evidence. I think he gave a very intelligent sentence and reasoning for his sentence.”
