I'm also in the military, and also spent many hours searching for a military discount... they don't exist, only the student discount. But I did find keys on Ebay, I ended up buying ultimate x64 for $36 and professional for $64 (ya, I know it's backwards, lol). But just check their feedback, and you can really get one cheap as dirt. You just need to find a OEM iso torrent of windows 7, and mount it up, then do the upgrade or clean install (yes you can do a clean install with a iso in windows 7). The guy i bought it from linked me to this site if I wanted to buy more www.onlinekey.net ... I don't know if I trust that site, but ebay worked twice for me, and one was from the guy that linked me that site.
