The. U.S. military is not ready for a constitutional crisis | The Atlantic

Ken Harbaugh served in the Navy as an aircraft commander and taught classes at the Citadel. When Harbaugh joined the Navy, he swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution. Now he realizes that at the time, he knew little about the documents and what that would truly mean in times of crisis here in the States. With the War on Terror and increasing tension between President Trump and the country, Harbaugh has had to think about what would happen if it came down to choosing between following orders or upholding the Constitution. He remembers when memos came out under the Bush administration where “enhanced” interrogation methods were used, but he thought of them as torture. These moral differences are making soldiers choose between what they think is right and what may or may not be best for their country.
