USS Theodore Roosevelt

The Navy is upholding the firing of Capt. Brett Crozier, the former commanding officer of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt who was relieved of duty after raising the alarm about a Covid-19 outbreak on his ship in March.

The decision marks a major reversal of senior leaders' previous recommendation to reinstate the captain, the Navy announced Friday.

The Navy will also hold up the promotion of the senior officer onboard the Roosevelt, Rear Adm. Stuart Baker, the commander of Carrier Strike Group 9. The carrier air wing commander and the ship's chief of medical operations will be referred for administrative action, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Michael Gilday announced.

Crozier will not be eligible for future command, effectively ending his Navy career.
