I see the Navy is going to make a pronouncement soon about what it will do with Captain Crozier. He is famous for gutting the readiness of an entire strike group by going public in unclassified forums over the virus and his fears about his crew safety.

I'd like the record to reflect that as far as we can tell right now, over 700 sailors on his ship had the antibodies suggesting they had the infection. One sailor, a Chief Petty Officer, reportedly died of the Corona virus and the rest seem to have survived on Guam which means they would have survived on the ship just as well. I suspect this little fact is going to be lost in the release of news on the future of Crozier.

Who was it who advised us all to not take counsel of our fears? Yeah, it were somebodies famous.
