"He tried to help us": the crew of the aircraft carrier of the U.S. Navy reported on allegiance to the captain

92

American leadership fleet accused the recently dismissed captain of the aircraft carrier "Theodore Roosevelt" of professional unfitness due to his mental abilities.


Stupid or naive


The stormy farewell of the crew of this ship with its commander forced to send the highest representatives of the fleet to Guam, where it was moored. And about. Navy Minister Thomas Modley flew to the US Pacific base on Sunday, where he met with aircraft carrier personnel.

As he explained to the crew, their former commander Brett Crozier violated the well-known to all sailors and soldiers UCMJ [Unified Code of Military Justice] by divulging confidential information about the infection of aircraft carrier personnel.

As I believe, if he thought that this information would not be known to the general public on the same day in our information age, then he was either too naive or too stupid to be the commander of such a ship

- Modley explained to the sailors, indicating that Crozier’s actions were a “betrayal of trust”, which he enjoyed on the part of his superiors and team.

Как указывает издание Task&Purpose, речь и.о. министра вызвала бурное негодование экипажа и её постоянно прерывали выкриками.

What the heck?!

- spoke out one of the sailors after saying about the stupidity of the captain.

He tried to help us.

shouts another sailor.

Love and ships


Against this background, Modley reprimanded the crew for their loyalty to the captain.

I understand that you love this guy. It’s good that you love him. But you should not love him [...] You should only respect him. You do not have to love your job, just do it. You should not expect anything from your commanders, except that they will treat you fairly and put the ship’s [combat] mission in the first place

- said Modley.

And about. The minister pointed out that Crozier’s actions not only exposed the problems of the American fleet in the face of the Chinese threat, but also caused “great controversy in Washington.” According to him, the former captain of the aircraft carrier created the image of a “martyr who did not receive the help he needed.”

Opponents of President Donald Trump, in particular Joe Biden, who is aiming for him, have already taken advantage of this situation. Democrats demand to open an investigation into the removal of Crozier. Support him and the general public.

At present, more than 253 thousand people have signed up to the captain’s reinstatement petition. However, given its popularity, most likely we will soon see him in big politics.

        Not quite clear situation. As I understand it, his letter where he asks to take more decisive measures to combat the virus somehow got into the network. Which one? How did the captain’s official correspondence with the command get there? Himself malnourished in order to put pressure on his command? Well, apparently, they fired for this.

            Already everyone apologized to the captain.
            And Modley apologized, saying that he was misunderstood.
            И Трамп, поначалу безусловно поддержавший увольнение, сказал, что "..один плохой день не должен ставить крест на карьере блестящего офицера." hi
            By the way, the captain himself became infected with the coronavirus.
            So he knew exactly what he was writing to the command.

          Well, it's all the same that the commander of a nuclear submarine based in Vilyuchinsk, for example, would write an open letter to the mayor of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky asking for help.

        Acting Secretary of the U.S. Navy Thomas Modley resigned the night before. This was the culmination of a dramatic story with the dismissal of the commander of the American aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt, Brett Crozier, who was removed from office by Minister Modley after sending out a letter in which the ship's captain asked the command of the Navy to take "decisive measures" to contain the outbreak of the Covid-7 coronavirus on board aircraft carrier cruiser. The contents of the letter leaked to the media, which served as the reason for the resignation of Crozier.

This happened a few days after Modley criticized the captain of the aircraft carrier in front of his crew. The comments of the head of the US Navy were preceded by the dismissal of the ship's captain Brett Crozier. Modley also apologized to the crew of the aircraft carrier and the Crozier family. This happened a few hours after the opposite statement and. about. US Secretary of the Navy, in which he noted that he supports every word he said earlier, reports today, April 7, Voice of America.

                  Look at the ratio of survivors and deceased from coronovirus in the UK. Having studied this ratio, you will understand how great the risk of death is in the absence of medical care in a limited space. For the United States, there are no threats now to risk the loss of the crew of a nuclear aircraft carrier. Trump's delay has caused an outbreak of the virus in the United States, which will be 10 times higher than the outbreak in the PRC. Trump's delay in isolating patients on an aircraft carrier and carrying out disinfection could damage the US Navy, which it has not suffered over the past 10 years from all US enemies.

                Here's another thing, even if they don’t die, everyone is young and relatively healthy (although this happens), then in any case, if the whole crew gets sick in the middle of the ocean, they will definitely make the ship sky-ready and can theoretically even lead to an accident or some other disaster. .
                The main question is where the leak of information to the press came from, if it got what it deserved from the captain, if from somewhere else - then the situation is not clear at all.

                  Yes, while mortality will be much higher. But the aircraft carrier is combat ready.

                  The question, in fact, is in this price, the price of the ship’s combat efficiency. The captain was the one who is willing to pay much less than his superiors. For which he suffers.

          But nothing that they prefer to consider this mortality from the number of cases, and not on completed cases? Or is there any certainty that none of the sick will die? In completed cases, less than 5% recover in the UK and the remaining 95% die.

                  От свиного гриппа по лабораторно-подтвержденным данным погибло около 18,500 человек по данным ВОЗ. Все остальные цифры - это estimations и экстраполяции. По "короне" лабораторно-подтвержденных по данным той же ВОЗ уже 82,161 за 3 месяца (статистика ведется с 22 января) и 7,500 свежих покойников за последние сутки в условиях всеобщей движухи и жестких карантинов по всему миру. Это то, что я вижу в цифрах.

      Почему сразу "паникёр"?
      Когда-то, готовясь воевать с СССР, американцы допускали потери в своей европейской группировке до 70%. И это считалось допустимым. Но потом пошла тенденция "беречь личный состав", "беречь каждого человека". И американцы действительно стараются ей следовать. Как и мы, кстати

      Так что исходя из установки "беречь каждого человека" капитан действовал правильно. Начал "бить в колокола"
      Однако начальство, судя по всему, начало дурить. Включив императивы Холодной войны. С "допустимыми потерями, не влияющими на боеспособность".

      У капитана случился когнитивный диссонанс между провозглашаемым принципом "беречь каждого" и требованиями "выполнения задачи любой ценой". И он вывалил переписку на суд общественности.

            According to Modli, Crozier was removed from office due to loss of confidence: he did not contact his immediate superior, who was with him on the aircraft carrier, but sent a letter to 20-30 recipients, among whom were not only his leaders from the Navy. Modley stressed that he does not know who leaked the letter, but believes that Crozier did not make sure that it remained a secret.

            In March 2020 he sent command the report on the outbreak of the coronavirus on board the aircraft carrier and suggested that the crew be evacuated, since the living conditions on the warship do not allow sailors to maintain a safe distance. “It will require a political decision, but it will be the right decision. We are not at war. Sailors do not need to die. If we don’t take action now, we won’t be able to properly take care of the most valuable resource - our sailors ”

            Somewhere in the history of posts I have a link to the original article in the Chronicle.
            The commander wrote a letter and sent to his superiors exactly how the team found out, including the text; it’s not entirely clear, but found out and wrote about the commander’s approval in social networks, it was read by newspaper men, who then contacted the sailors on the aircraft carrier on anonymous terms. The commander himself did not write to the newspaper and did not say anything to them.

    Friends, let's use the right marine terminology. Navy warships have no captains, but commanders. Captains command civil courts.
    Now to the point. If the commander is not able to ensure the combat readiness of the ship entrusted to him in peacetime, then how will he act in real combat? The answer is obvious. This is too large a ship to be commanded by a mediocre officer, a guy on the board, a universal favorite.
    However, we will not advise anything to a potential enemy, let their fleet fall apart. Let the good guys command them, who will not offend flies.

Остальные солдаты и офицеры лежали в сан части с различными кожными заболеваниями и вылечить их никак не могли. Танки есть, БТР есть, артиллерия есть, а воевать этим некому!!! Так эта информация была обнародована только в 90е. А тут весь мир знает что в море ходит авианосец на котором свирепствует эпидемия! Капитан однозначно неправ. А вот экипаж молоды!
