  1. As for the captain: Did he violate chain of command with correspondence? Sure seems like it. Gone. Did he expose a capability issue with military preparedness? Sure seems like it. Gone. Not sure why it’s any more complicated than that.
  2. Very bad look for you.
  3. Again, for what it’s worth... I spoke with my Navy SEAL uncle about it and he thinks it’s bullship. He also forwarded me an email from someone he refers to as one of the most highly respected SEALs of all time (who’s been in a lot of combat), who had some choice words for the Secretary of the Navy about this and thinks it’s bullship.

    And here is a pretty cool article that details how the real Teddy Roosevelt (remember, the ship in question is the USS Theodore Roosevelt) was in a shockingly similar position dealing with Malaria and Yellow Fever with the Rough Riders back in Cuba...

  4. I can understand why some would think it’s BS. I simply don’t agree. If he went outside the chain of command I don’t see how he could maintain the trust of the brass and that’s before any consideration of his exposing a preparedness defect to the world (including our enemies).

  8. The resistance media in these press conferences is disgusting. They go into these press conferences trying to push and form narratives rather than ask questions that actually matter

  9. Not to mention allowed shore leave which resulted in the infections. So he "created" the situation he leaked a letter about and became a hero.

  10. Trying to figure out how to combine that gif with “asshoe” just to see Moose’s response.

  11. Yeah we have a couple of Navy guys at the office (E-9's and O-3's) and they said the firing was complete chicken****.

  12. If it happened as you state that isn’t good but doubt that alone would have warranted removal. And, I’m led to believe that he will be reassigned somewhere.
  13. I would like to see some actual evidence that he went out of the chain of command with his letter not slanted news stories to protect the decision to fire him

  14. Other than the politics of it, is there any reason anyone not in the navy gives a [ Cumbie’s red zone playcalling ] about this?
  15. Would like to see the Naval directive that shore leaves for this ship and all others were cancelled prior to the ship arriving in Vietnam not from sources that are protecting the decision to fire him
  16. NOW you have a problem with slanted news stories? Laughable. Need to change your handle to “HA”. I don’t think there’s any dispute that he distributed it outside channels and beyond chain of command. If it is found that his chain of command was adhered to exclusively and the “leak” was from a superior then I say fire that superior.
