The majority of the patients I see in a military hospital are dependents and retirees, which is typically reflective of the civilian population's health status (read: same). Military members 'may' be grateful for your care, or they may treat you like wait staff at a hotel.
As far as pursuing CRNA school goes, I know for the Navy you have to apply to the DUINS program and have your package go in front of a board for selection. It is competitive, and based upon a myriad of things, such as officer evals from multiple years, GRE scores, GPA in any post-BSN coursework, specialty-leader endorsement, etc. Don't quote me, but they may now have a requirement that you complete at least your second duty station to apply, with typical rotations being 3 years per. In essence, the military is not a quick route to CRNA - you're actually more likely to get in/complete school now on your own while out based upon the experience you listed.
Sounds like a troll post. For an NP prepared at the doctorate level, the writing in that post has me concerned if true.
"some new grads are downright incompetent these days"
I won't assume that you mean to say there weren't incompetent grads 'back in the day' - perhaps if training programs were better, results would be better.
