43. Other aspect of this I haven't seen mentioned: The combat readiness of the Roosevelt

The responsibility for combat readiness and the welfare of the crew go hand in hand. Whoever fired Crozier just killed the messenger, not the message. If Whoever thinks this takes care of the problem, he'd better think again. Either every commander from a Basic Training Squadron to an Army Corps will keep silence about COVID19 breaking out in their unit which could then become ineffective or they will speak up. Then, Whoever will have a decision to make -- fire them or deal with it.

He'd better deal with it or it will become much worse than just one ship, an important ship, losing its readiness. There is no such thing as social distancing in the armed forces, regardless of branch. As another DU so elegantly put it, it's nuts to butts. The virus could tear through the service like a blow torch through tissue paper.

Of all the mindless, malevolent mistakes Trump and his lackeys have made, trashing canning Captain Crozier is at least in the top five.
