    Hes a hero. The navy better pray he lives
    He could have gone up his chain of command and then resigned his post. You're giving him a blank check. He could have taken action guaranteed to get attention from the Navy and not from the press. He chose fame.

    There isn't an officer alive that isn't trying to look good to the upper brass...lol
    I realize this will be hard to believe, but I once held up the promotion of a 2nd Lt to 1st Lt by hiding his evaluation paper that the CO had to complete, sign and send back. Oh that was some fun. I released it later and he got the promotion. In my case, the XO was very despised by the EM plus other officers. I only saw one officer of his caliber and he did not belong in the Army. The Col our commander chewed his ass out for losing an entire company of men in Germany. Recall how Sobel in the film called Band of Brothers lost his troops? Well this XO was his twin. A dumb ass know it all jerk.



    Sobel lost in England too

    The criticism of Trump to say it mildly is not relevant. The man performs his office magnificently. Take a racer at the 500 Indy race. The driver may have womanized. May have boozed and gambled. May have never voted. But man can that driver race.
    Trump is like the winner of the Indy 500.

    Nope, I see it as yet another example of the hatred Trump and his cult have for the military, as displayed by their statements.

    Officers’ jobs is to keep their men alive as long as possible. One can’t accomplish a mission with a bunch of corpses.

    No one in the military is under any obligation to “prevent controversy”. They swear an oath to the country, not to protect Donald Trump from embarrassment.
    Officer's swear an oath to discharge their duties. One of those duties is to obey orders from their chain of command.

    Fame? He did NOT send his email to the media. Others did that. He was concerned 4000 sailors would get coronavirus. He had good reason to be concerned....he got it himself.

    You dont quit on your crew. You fight for them.

    You would have him watch his entire crew infected.

    If you think Capt Crozier did it to embarrass the president, well he deserved to be run out of the Navy.

    That excuse never occurred to me though.
    The criticism of Trump to say it mildly is not relevant. The man performs his office magnificently. Take a racer at the 500 Indy race. The driver may have womanized. May have boozed and gambled. May have never voted. But man can that driver race.

    He was concerned about his crew. He didn't want them infected.


    If he survives....he will make admiral
