I agree that military experience would be an advantage. It's easier for authors to create verisimilitude if they can draw on a wealth of personal experience.

For what it's worth, don't think this is going to end up being military science fiction in the classic sense. My protagonist has ended up in the armed forces somewhat against her will, and I feel compelled to allow this story event to occur and see where the plot trail leads.

I guess you could say that, in this case, "write what you know" got trumped by "write what you love."
