I often expound the value of military training in this business. There's a lot of carry-over... professional attitude and bearing, experience working with a team and leadership training are common to all branches and will benefit you in any office job. 5-Paragraph-Orders are very similar in structure to a well-written feature or bug. Standup meetings resemble morning muster formations, Project wikis are analogous to Desktop Turnovers, library docs can be used much the same way as TMs, and Retro meetings are almost identical to After-Action Briefings.
