Navy aircraft carrier captain ousted for raising alarm on COVID-19 received a hero's send-off from sailors
Captain Brett Crozier received a thunderous send-off Friday morning as he exited the U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt in Guam. Video taken by sailors on the aircraft carrier show hundreds of service members chanting "Captain Crozier! Captain Crozier!" and clapping as he walked down the gangway.
Crozier was relieved of his duty by Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly after sending a strongly-worded letter to Navy leadership about the spread of COVID-19 on his ship.
He was ousted for sending the letter over "non-secure unclassified email" to a "broad array of people" rather than up the chain of command.
