Heck, David Weber? Lois McMaster Bujold? I'm pretty sure they had no military experience.

Add to it the observation that I served with people who could not put two coherent written sentences in row, and I think military fiction is just as well if not better written by a good writer who does research than by virtue of personal experience with the non-fictional military.

What exactly is informing this opinion of yours?
