If by "the service" you mean military, no, Southwest does not offer a military discount. Wanna Get Away fares are Southwest's lowest fare and are available to everyone. There are child and senior discounts available on the more expensive Anytime fares.

Actually, Southwest does offer a Military Fare, which -- similar to child and Infant fares -- are usually a discount off the "refundable" Anytime fare. Wanna Get Away is generally the lowest price, but sometimes, in cases of last-minute travel, these can be cheaper options. They are only available by contacting Southwest directly at 800-I-FLY-SWA.

Thanks for the correction @chgoflyer

They definitely hide it by requiring a phone call.

You have to call for Infant/Child fares too. There are some others as well -- Government, Pet, Unacompanied Minor -- that require a call. The only special fares that I know of that can be booked online are Senior.
