They’re taught not to obey illegal orders and the Nazis were convicted (some executed) after stating “I was just following orders” remember?
Sorry Vet, But following these orders wouldn’t violate the constitution, are not being used against American citizens, and refusing to do things we disagree with isn’t reason enough to do do something like this publicly, in uniform. I loathed this kind of behavior when it was done prior to Afghanistan, and Iraq. Who the president is doesn’t change the rules.
When I was walking through the streets of Mogadishu and the former Yuogoslavia, I too was put off by the idiotic decisions made by BJ and his crew, but I wouldn’t have done this to my uniform.
