The President of the United States is the Commander-In-Chief of the military. When one is enlisted or becomes an officer in a branch of the U.S. military, he or she must take an oath to obey the orders of the President. The President is the highest ranking officer of the military.

The President has the authority to request a Declaration of War from the Congress (both parties must agree), he has the ability to send troops to fight abroad for 60 days without a declaration of war, and as Commander-in-Chief; he issues orders and provides strategic guidance to the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The commander in chief of all military forces in the United States is the US president. Quite naturally this president would heed the advice of many military and political advisors. The US Civil War saw the US President Lincoln play a large role in the conduct of that war.
