The dismissal of Captain Brett Crozier from command of a 5,000-person U.S. aircraft carrier comes two days after the commander’s letter leaked to the press. It is a dramatic example of how the coronavirus is challenging U.S. institutions, even those accustomed to dangerous and complex missions like the U.S. military.

The removal was announced by acting U.S. Navy Secretary Thomas Modly, who said the commander exercised poor judgment by not safeguarding the letter from being released outside the chain of command.
