WASHINGTON- Ranking Member Mac Thornberry (R-TX), made the following statement on the Navy’s investigation into the COVID-19 outbreak aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt:
“The Navy was right to conduct a thorough investigation into the spread of COVID-19 on the USS Theodore Roosevelt and the actions Navy leaders took to keep Sailors safe. It is clear that there are lessons to be learned and improvements that must be made.
“When this incident first emerged, I declined to comment on the status of Captain Crozier. I do not believe it is appropriate for Members of Congress, who are outside the chain of command, to comment on individual personnel actions. Doing so is too often unfair to the individual service members involved and their leadership. I continue to hold that view.”
