Navy will not reinstate USS Roosevelt captain, who authored leaked email pleading for COVID-19 help

The U.S. Navy announced Friday that the former captain of the coronavirus-stricken aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt will not get his job back, despite an earlier investigation that recommended he be returned to the helm.

What are the details?

press release from Naval Operations reported that Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Michael Gilday determined that ousted Capt. Brett Crozier "will not be re-instated" as commander officer of the ship, after reviewing "the results of the command investigation into the events surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt."
The media alert also announced a delay in the promotion of Crozier's boss, saying consideration "of Rear Adm. Stuart Baker for a second star has been delayed pending further examination."
MarketWatch reported the decision as "a stunning reversal" that serves as "confirmation of concerns expressed by top Pentagon officials who demanded a deeper investigation last month when the initial probe recommended Crozier's reinstatement as the ship's captain."
