There is no requirement that the President have military experience. However, the President is the Commander in Chief of the US Military. As such, it is certainly a big plus in the minds of many people, including the military.

No, in fact, many of the presidents have never even served in the Military. Only twenty of the 43 had war time service and 15 had no military service at all.
