Captain Who Raised Alarm on COVID-19-Infected Carrier Could Face Punishment - US Navy Secretary

Earlier this week, the captain of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, which has reported dozens of COVID-19 cases while at sea, wrote a scathing letter to US Navy leaders demanding support in quarantining his crew. Now, the acting Navy secretary has said he might face a reprimand for it.

"I don't know who leaked the letter to the media. That would be something that would violate the principles of good order and discipline, if he were responsible for that. But I don't know that,” acting US Navy Secretary Thomas Modly told reporters on Wednesday about the Monday letter from Capt. Brett Crozier.

"The fact that he wrote the letter up to his chain of command to express his concerns would absolutely not result in any type of retaliation," Modly further noted.
