Sailors slam Navy for virus response on ships, Naval Base San Diego

Ever since COVID-19 began spreading in the San Diego community in early March, military leaders here have been challenged to balance their mission obligations with the need to protect the health of personnel.

Some service members and their families are questioning that balancing act. They’re criticizing Navy leaders’ decisions and noting the variety of ways various units are responding to coronavirus outbreaks.

The most visible example of this questioning was a letter publicized last week from Captain Brett Crozier of the San Diego-based carrier Theodore Roosevelt to Navy brass, urging them to provide more resources and to evacuate 90 percent of the personnel on the ship after an outbreak.
