Ok these are off the cuff so don't expect them to be too funny....

10: The police pretend to care.

9: The military have neater cars... bigger guns... and more targets.

8: The military is trained to do their job.

7: I don't know but the haircuts are the same.

6: Cops get doughnuts and the military gets MREs.

5: The waistline.

4: Cops say "Freeze!"

3: Soldiers swear to uphold the constitution and protect the country from "all enemies, external and internal"... cops just swear.

Finally, the number one difference between the military and the police.....
