Illustration for article titled USS Theodore Roosevelt, CVN-71 [UPDATE] Capt. Crozier is Relieved of Command.

I called that one.


The aircraft carrier USS Roosevelt has an accelerating COVID outbreak ongoing among her crew. The ship’s captain, Capt. Brett Crozier, wrote a letter to the command asking them to evacuate his crew in order to avoid deaths of sailors for whom social distancing is impossible. The Roosevelt is in Guam, where there’s no place to quarantine 5,000 sailors.


I expect the act of writing that letter will effectively end Capt. Crozier’s Navy career.
