Do you know that Ask.com is international website, so there are many different people here from different countries all over the world so when you ask "How many presidents have served in the military?" we have to wonder what country you are talking about !! For sure there will be answers with respect to the USA...
Technically, all of them, as the President is by office the Commander in Chief of the military. But as to prior service (before taking office), 15 presidents served with Army/Army Reserve, followed by State Militias at 9, Navy/Naval Reserve at 6 and the Continental Army with 2 presidents serving. The following page outlines the military service of each president before becoming the commander in chief. So, 32 presidents had prior service. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Presidents_of_the_United_States_by_military_service
