Last Friday, the crew of aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt cheered the heroic actions of their reassigned Captain Brett Crozier as he disembarked the ship.
Last week Captain Brett Crozier, commander of the aircraft carrier was fired after a four page memo he had sent to Navy leaders was leaked. He urged the speedy evacuation of his ship of nearly 4,000 plus sailors as the coronavirus was spreading though the ranks. He pleaded “We are not at war. Sailors do not need to die. If we do not act now, we are failing to properly take care of our most trusted asset: our Sailors,” At that time 155 sailors from the Roosevelt had tested positive for Covid-19. Now we learn that Captain Crozier himself has tested positive for the virus and is currently quarantined.
The decision to remove Crozier from his post by made by Acting Secretary of the Navy, Thomas Modly, He explained his decision to Crozier’s crew “If he didn’t think, in my opinion, that this information wasn’t going to get out to the public, in this day and information age that we live in, then he was either too naive or too stupid to be a commanding officer of a ship like this,” Modly said. “The alternative is that he did this on purpose.”
“It was a betrayal.” Modly continued, “And I can tell you one other thing: because he did that he put it in the public’s forum and it is now a big controversy in Washington, DC,” Modly revealed how strongly presidential politics had played in his actions. “I didn’t want to get into a decision where the president would feel that he had to intervene because the Navy couldn’t be decisive,”
It is claimed by Modly that Crozier was relieved of duty due to a loss of confidence and failure to adhere to the chain of command. Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. Mike Gilday requested that a formal investigation be conducted but his request was overridden. The term “betrayal” is serious military accusation because it could used as the basis of a future court martial offense ending Captain Crozier’s brilliant career in shame and humiliation.
UPDATE: Over the weekend Congressmen Ted Wl Lieu (D-CA) and Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) called for an investigation as to whether Thomas Modly had acted inappropriate in relieving Captain Cozier of his commission. They followed up with a letter to Secretary of Defense Mark Esper calling for Modly to be fired. On Monday, April 7, Modly promptly resigned from his position, The conclusion can be drawn that Captain Crozier will remain in the navy and regarded as the fine military figure that he is.
The birth date of Captain Brett Crozier is February 24, 1970, giving him a #36 MAR PIS Signature. He was born on a Tuesday in the zodiac sign of Pisces. Those with this energy configuration have dynamic Mars as the ruler of their INNER self and expansive Jupiter as the ruler of their OUTER self.
People born on Tuesdays are meant to be active. Most often their physical build tends to be lean and muscular as long as they stay on the move. Athletic events and the military exercises hold great appeal. Tuesday’s children have a strong “fighter” or “defender” nature. Their natural responses are fast and physical, so good judgment must be developed to keep them out of trouble.
All Pisces have exceptionally strong feelings. These folks experience a wide range of emotional states ranging all the way from depression to elation. The role of ‘victim’ may be experienced until they get tired of being kicked around. They also play the part of loyal follower or dedicated server until they discover their true purpose. After that they inspire others to follow their own paths.
The motivations of a Pisces depends depend very much upon their concerns. Of course, some natives of this sign can be insecure and selfish, but the majority can be counted upon to act selflessly when the occasion calls. A #36 Tuesday Pisces individual can be courageous and compassionate too.
