Civilian jobs are paid, for the most part, on hourly work performed. Anything over 40 usually being overtime. In the military, you're effectively on-call 24/7 the whole year, whether you want to be or not and at the rate for your pay-grade, period. So there's no real equivalency in comparing the two.
Maybe they do not translate, but mostly the same skills I used in my USAF job were those I needed in my later civilian jobs, with a tenfold pay increase.
