The dismissed captain of the aircraft carrier "Theodore Roosevelt" may be reinstated


Brett Crozier, who was dismissed from the post of captain of the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt for a report on the situation on the ship with the incidence of coronavirus, can be restored. But US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper has not yet made a final decision on this issue.


The situation around the dismissal of the captain of an American aircraft carrier is discussed by the American press.

Before talking with the command of the US Navy about the future fate of Brett Crozier, the head of the Pentagon wants to study in more detail a copy of the preliminary investigation of the Naval fleet about the outbreak of COVID-19 on board an aircraft carrier.

The scandal in the American media space erupted after Crozier’s report somehow got to the press. As it turned out, the captain sent a report not only to his immediate superiors, but also to other senior officers of the US Navy, based in the Pacific Ocean. About his act sharply and negatively expressed the US Navy Secretary Thomas Modley (by the way, later also resigned). But many US military approved Crozier’s act, saying that the commander of the warship did everything to protect the interests of the crew.

This particular case reflected disagreements among the command of the US Armed Forces about what is more important: to maintain combat effectiveness or save the lives of personnel. Crozier considered that he did not have the right to sacrifice the lives of the crew of an aircraft carrier in peacetime:

We are not at war now, so why should my sailors die?

In such a situation, Crozier has every chance to return to the aircraft carrier as a commander (in the American version - the captain), or even go higher up the career ladder.

      Yes, but if you recall that in the United States there is case law, it will be possible to act through the head of a superior commander or not even follow orders in full with the justification "that now is peacetime and there is no need to risk the lives of soldiers."

    - It is still unknown where the information leak came from.
    -It would be worse if I hadn’t reported at all. Just dismissal might not have gotten away.
    -How to be with the article "For the loss of confidence."

    I would like to read now the comments of those who, after the captain’s dismissal, almost wrote him to Russian friends, just because he went against the system.
    If it is now restored, then I have a dissonance - to the commander of an American aircraft carrier, almost all VO sympathized, and now he is a penguin, a mattress and do not understand who else)))

    And nobody canceled the course of the party. Many in VO are very good at keeping their nose in the wind. The team will arrive and repaint very quickly.

    The team probably considers him his hero and there are some kind of fermentation.
    It will be interesting if for such a serious violation of subordination nothing will happen to him.
    Democracy in the army, even sailor committees and fraternities to introduce ...

    The commander sacrificed his career for the sake of saving and saving people. The immediate superiors would try their best to hide the outbreak of the disease, which would multiply the loss of l / s. A worthy deed of an officer in any fleet. soldier If restored, it will be the best ship in the fleet, because each crew member will be personally devoted to his cap. In the mind: it is necessary to restore the commander.

    or even go up the career ladder.
    Trump will intervene, and he will. To make a responsible decision on their own, that person is needed, but they are always lacking. Yes, and Trump will have micro +.

    In this news, if it is not fake, there is a precedent.
    On the one hand, the captain of the ship saved the crew by all means.
    On the other hand, while rescuing, he violated a series of instructions of a serviceman.
    It is very dangerous to punish ... and the press supports it. One official from the fleet has already lost his post.
    But not to punish, and return to the ship means that in the future
    any commander will be able to violate rules and laws in such a way when he sees fit.
    Precedent...

    Judging by the way the Captain escorted the crew, he’s normal man. And as a possible adversary, so the adversary is worthy of respect.
