That depends, I'd say, on whether the military experience was relevant
(or could be made relevant) to the work you were looking for.

A resume should be truthful, but it is not an objective description of
your job history. If military experience (or any other work) cannot be
related to the position you're applying for, it deserves no more than a
line under "Misc. Work Experience."
