The military uses metric measures as well.  Ranges are measured in
meters, not feet or yards, for instance.  Distances for travel are
typically measured in kilometers (aka "klicks").

The fact that the general public in the US has thus far largely resisted
the use of metric measures is in no way evidence that their use should
not be encouraged, however.
