Clinton does even worse among enlisted personnel with only 14.1% of the vote:

Not surprising, Clintonâ€™s email server and Trumpâ€™s comments on the Khans are important issues to military voters:
Approximately 90 percent of troops surveyed oppose Clintonâ€™s use of a private email server for official business during her time at the State Department. About 60 percent opposed Trumpâ€™s handling of criticism from the Gold Star parents of a Muslim American soldier killed in Iraq.
