When you say the military uses Nikon, you should be more specific. It has been my experience that the Army Public Affairs branch uses Nikon digital still cameras for documentary and photojournalism purposes, and some rather professional grade gear I might add. However, it seems that the Engineers (including yours truly) prefer Canon for more technical tasks like ground and aerial route reconnaissance or construction progress documentation. If you want to see some awesome high-speed photography, I recommend the work put out by the Army artillery test center in Yuma, Arizona, or the White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. The arty guys have no problem taking pics of 6″ projectiles leaving the barrel that are so sharp you can read the hand writing on the side of the shell.
