Being slightly rogue is kinda built-in by necessity
And I'm NOT criticizing aviators in general.
Been around enough of them over the years to get their mentality.
Your criticism is well placed.
Crozier appears to be a good guy, but mistaken and arrogant.
Had he followed the chain of command or even used the proper communications channel, he'd still be in command of TR.
His boss was two doors away and he never went there.
Besides his errors in fact, he made a huge error in judgement.
NAVSEC was right.
SecNav didn't help with anti-military media waiting in the wings. Now the President is forced to step in. Will he reverse the firing, give Crozier honorable discharge? The man has Covid-19. Should he die from the disease, I can only imagine what the media will do to Trump.
This president has so much to deal with - and now this nonsense. If only we could stop the media.
He wasn't discharged. He was relieved from command as he should have been.
The President will NOT reverse the order.
I don't care if the SOB has leprosy and cancer of the balls.
The media is powerless and irrelevant in this matter.
Nobody will remember this moron until he resurfaces as some kind of analyst in CNN.
Being relieved of command is just the first step of a rather nasty journey for a Naval Commander, or any commander for that.
Noting makes my blood boil than people not understanding the seriousness.
As I said at the beginning of this, this guy will not make it beyond next month with his commission intact.
Those who follow know how I feel about that fargin cliche as it has now become "Thank you for your service.
People are oblivious to the fact of Article 15, 32 and the rest in the UCMJ, Uniform Code of Military Justice and the reason why it must exist.
Because the military has the dregs just like regular society.
I served with people I would not have pissed on if they were on fire.
Now it is fashionable to bestow that same cliche on everyone who wears a bunch of funny colored clothes without knowing a damned thing about the person.
When I took that oath on November 29, 1971, I knew it was for life, for as long as it may last. It is still as lasting today and even more so.
You are free of me now. Time to get ready for work and my commute to create things for our kids so they can efficiently kill people and break things.
No thanks to that arrogant asshole who thought he was more important than his commander just two staterooms away on the same ship and every citizen.
@RonOgletree @Debradelai @AmareVita @Lonestar @HectorHeathcote. After reading that letter you shared with me, I dont understand why he sent the email when help was already on the way! Why did he ruin his career. Oh and PS, I agree with you wholeheartedly on this. Most dont understand the seriousness of security.
@RonOgletree @Debradelai @AmareVita @Lonestar @HectorHeathcote I'm betting your correct. When I get to my desktop, I'm going to share this with her and her ignorant buddies. Their attacks again, are on the Secretary of the Navy. She share an audio that he put on the ship to the crew. I'll see if I can share it here. He rips the CO to the crew.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
