Was it wrong for the Navy to fire Captain Crozier?

President Trump backed the removal of Capt. Brett Crozier, saying that a letter stating the dire situation on board "looked terrible." Crozier's letter to top Navy leaders called for immediate action to stop the coronavirus outbreak and prevent the deaths of sailors aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt. Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Moldly justified firing Crozier in an address to the ship's crew, calling Crozier "too naive or too stupid" to be in command.  He went on to say Crozier was fired for leaking to the media, and by extension, leaking essential information about the security of a major military asset. However, sailors cheered Crozier's name when he departed the ship and civilians have rallied to his side. Crozier was clearly doing what was best for the people he was leading.
