Way back in the 60's, before the computer, my husband received electronics training in the Navy. Later, he became the computer tech at the company where he worked for 36 years. I think it would depend on the person rather than where he obtained his training.

The tech graduate. I wouldn't hire anyone from the military without a psychological screening. Not worth it to have unstable individuals in my employ. There are enough challenges in the workforce without trying to work with someone who has lost touch with how to get along with civilians.
