I liked the depiction of the Military in the previous game, as well as the feeling of authoritarianism that they gave Boston and the other Quarantine Zones they controlled. The World War Z novel-style blue uniforms and riot gear were kinda cool as well.
I'm not sure if they'll be in Part II, though. That said, Denver is implied to be an operational Quarantine Zone, and I think it is located within a reasonable distance of Jackson County. I think the Fireflies are implied to be returning, and I suppose the Military is an important moral contrast to the Fireflies, as well as the reason for their existence.
Like the first game, if they are in Part II, I don't think they'll play an important role in the overall plot; they'd probably just be one-time enemies that are on patrol or something, who would only engage our heroes because they're in the wrong place at the wrong time. Still, I hope they make an appearance!
I don't think the Military will have a presence, or at the most much of one, in The Last of Us Part II. For starters, Tommy's Dam is in Jackson County, Wyoming. The Quarantine Zone is in Denver, Colorado. That's at least a few hundred miles.
I want the Military to have a presence. Think about, they are looking for supplies and they will go out of cities and into the country. I also want the military to be bigger and stronger but that is very unlikey due to their logistics.

I have to agree with Zippo here. The nearest "known quarantine" is at Denver.
The only time the Military leaves the quarantine is:
Yeah, it's sad because the military were well developed for the short time we saw them. As a sequel, it'd be nice to see the military develop over those years beyond "they've all died out" or "no military round here".
Hopefully the developers will at least add collectibles filling in some details about them, like more fallen QZs, words on patrols, or more personal accounts like those from Left Behind.
