The commander of the aircraft carrier, USS Theodore Roosevelt who was removed from command for disclosing COVID-19 was making sailors on his ship sick is seen here in 2019 wearing a nice looking G-1.
All gets 'political' as they prepare for the 'One Star' elevation. Hopefully, the Armed Forces medical cohort can sort him out.Yeah, fuckn, crying shame. Just when ya need folks who are willing to maker the hard decisions, they get shit canNed. That kinda crap starts from the top down, until.........
Aircraft carrier commanders don’t grow on trees, so his removal is really bad news. The military has to deal with politicians all the time, but the fabricated excuse used to remove him shows how bad it is when loyalists are in charge and everything/everyone else be damned. I’m glad his crew gave him a cheering send off, seeing him as the true leader he is. We could really use more of them, especially today. He can stay at my place if he wants - even with COVID-19. You want to help somebody? Then really help them and don't pussyfoot around.salute to this guy for looking out for the sailors under his command.
unfortunately, there will always be politicians...........
The way he sent the letter appeared fine to me, but if it was inappropriate he did it to protect his crew at his expense. Either way, Capt. Crozier did the right thing.I can't imagine that he did not know that there would be consequences for releasing that letter. To my mind it makes what he did all the more admirable.
He didn't just call him stupid, he flew 16,000 miles round trip to call him stupid. What an excellent use of taxpayer money in a time of crisis!Well ... The one positive thing that came out of all this was, that the Acting Secretary of the Navy who called the captain “Stupid” over the ships loud speaker, has resigned for that crap.
Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly resigned on Tuesday, a day after leaked audio revealed he called the ousted commander of the USS Theodore Roosevelt "stupid" in an address to the ship's crew.amp.cnn.com
