A U.S. Navy investigation into the spread of the coronavirus aboard the Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier found that about 60 percent of sailors tested had antibodies for the virus, suggesting a far higher infection rate than previously known on one of world's largest warships.

I assume this means these sailors must be quarantined and tested safe before going on shore leave. That's so sad.

There's research that shows almost 50% of people carrying this virus do not show symptoms over extended periods of time. That's very frightening for people like myself that are high risk. That also makes the opening up of public venues even more risky considering we have limited testing and virtually zero organized, planned contact tracing.

Best wishes go out to all our service members that must work in confined quarters......

1. That's hugely interesting. I was talking to carrier vet yesterday and we both couldn't ...

understand how the Roosevelt could have been the only carrier or big ship affected. We both figured the Navy kept this under its white cap. That the reason Crozier got treated so rankly was he almost let the entire cat out of their bag.

Here's a needed inquiry that'll never happen.

3. Many of his action surely have soured our military personnel with him...

In and out of Syria and Afghanistan, missteps with the VA, hiding infections on ships, shuffling soldiers like toys at the border and now at protests.

If they can't see they're political pawns, they don't deserve to be in the military but I fear many are brainwashed right-wingers.
