Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller was taken into custody at military prison at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina
He is awaiting a military hearing for breaking a gag order which prevented him from criticizing the US pull out from Afghanistan on social media
The first hearing is expected this Thursday, but it is not known how long he will be held in 'the brig'
The Lieutenant Colonel first began posting critical videos on social media on August 26 - the same day a suicide bomber killed 11 US marines in Kabul
Stuart Scheller Sr has given an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com to discuss his son's plight and the Marine Corps' handling of the situation
