This, again, is the assumption that the Federation even HAS a military. They very well may not; it would just be another in a list of things they inexplicably do not have (the others being money, poverty, corruption, and journalists).
Problem is that they do have money (mentioned quite a bit), they do have poverty (Tasha Yar's colony), they do have corruption (see Ensign Ro) and they would have to have journalists if there's a Federation News Service.
