Man, what a nightmare for the Navy’s PR team. Those Sailors love Captain Crozier. He helped get them the medical help they needed and demanded answers from the top reaches of the government. That’s exactly what you want if you’re a sailor on an air craft carrier.
The Skipper is a certified legend. He’ll never has a Star on his collar but he’ll have the respect of his Sailors forever which is immensely more valuable. He should have both though. There’s no question about that.
