I'm assuming it has to do with the head position? Came across the term and I'm not having any luck with a search.

It means the babe is leading with their forehead. Unlike a babe with a nicely tucked chin, a babe with a "military presentation" has their chin up a bit, as if they were "standing at attention". It often results in a longer or more difficult birth since the presenting part is bigger than it could be if the babe tucked their chin.
this is what I understand it to mean as well head like at attention so the chin is NOT tucked into the chest -- a forehead presentation would be head tipped back even further and then after that would be degrees of face presentation
I wanted to add this neat link because they are pic of terracotta models at this museum site.
