All Soldiers have taken a sworn oath to defend the Constitution against its enemies both domestic and foreign and remain loyal to the American way of life. There are two different oaths that are taken. One is for Soldiers and one is for Officers. Both swear to support and defend the Constitution.
The key difference is the omission of the promise to obey in the Officer’s oath. Officers are legally bound by the same Uniformed Code of Military Justice as all Soldiers are, but they are not morally bound. Officers are trusted by the American People, through their congressional representatives who approve commissions, with the enormous moral responsibility of knowing when not to obey.
 
If our government chooses to continue the fight for global dominance, the lethal enforcement of our values on nations abroad, and the use of force on our own citizens then I will be one Army Officer who makes the moral decision to say no, and challenge our leadership. I will no doubt be subjected to trial and punishment for disobeying orders but I will share my views with other Army Officers and hope that they stand with me against the continuation of senseless use of force that has no international legal justification…………..
EXCERPT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
