Who gave the orders for the US to go to DEFCON 2?

DEFCON, or defense readiness condition, is not a national status for the United States. Different branches of the military can be under different DEFCON levels. DEFCON levels are controlled by the President and the Secretary of Defense when ordering to raise or lower the level across all US Armed Forces; however, branch leaders and administration can also individually raise or lower DEFCON levels of their respective branches. DEFCON 2 is the second-highest level of alert readiness for the United States Armed Forces, and conjointly describes an emergency defense situation in which nuclear war is near. The only time DEFCON 2 was ever raised was during the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962. The Strategic Air Command (SAC) was ordered to DEFCON 2 alertness by their command headquarters on 26 October 1962, while the rest of the armed forces stayed at DEFCON 3.

Was the US ever at DEFCON 5?

Defcon has 5 levels. Defcon 5 is the lowest, the normal setting, so yes the US have been at D5 Defcon 4 is above normal, so during a war like Afghan and Iraq, D4 would have been activated Defcon 3 is where we start to worry. This is the one during critical points during war. Just to put into perspective, D4 was standard setting for ICBM sites during the Cold War. Defcon 2 is not good at all. There has been only 1 point where D2 was called and that was Cuban Missile Crisis, where the world was hours away from a MAD war. Defcon 1 is the worst. At this point, say goodbye, nuclear war is minutes away. D1 had never been called and I hope it never is. Defcon details remain classified and criteria for their setting has changed over the years.
