The Navy has fired Capt. Brett Crozier as the commanding officer of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, after a letter he wrote about COVID-19 infections on the ship was leaked to the media.
Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly said Cozier broke his chain of command, endangered the ship's crew by potentially alerting the enemy and showed poor judgment when help was already on the way for his ship.
Cozier's sailors applauded him as he left the ship, and he has since been reportedly diagnosed withe the virus.
