I'm a reservist, how do I write a resume that includes my military and work experience?

I have a little previous work experience. I worked at two retail stores during the same time frame, before leaving Job A (2-3 months) to continue only working Job B. I stayed at Job B for 6 months. I left for personal reasons but was rehired 2 months later, after working 2 weeks I left for boot camp and A-school. I came straight back to work for Job B and worked there for another 6 months before I was let go. How do I show al of this in an understandable fashion to future employers. I have 5 1/2 years at least left on my contract. I definitely need some help.
