1st it isn't a red state military,it's the US military. 2nd they also swear to follow the orders of the president,not any given governor of a state. 3rd if this scenario even happened it would be cuz one or more red states decided to violate the constitution & tried to succeed. So our military if were to take the red states side would by definition be committing treason.
